Individual Farm Model for Common Agricultural Policy Analysis
The IFM-CAP model is designed to simulate EU-wide economic impacts of the Common Agricultural Policy and farm related policies targeted by the European Green Deal. The IFM-CAP can also be used to model environmental impacts of policies at farm level. The model provides detailed policy impacts at individual farm level on various economic and environmental indicators. More precisely, the IFM-CAP model allows a flexible assessment of a wide range of farm-specific policies; reflects the full heterogeneity of EU farms in terms of policy representation and impacts; covers all main agricultural production activities in the EU; provides a detailed analysis of different farming systems; and estimates the distributional impacts of policies across the farm population.
IFM-CAP was applied to support the following policy initiatives:
- DG AGRI assessment of CAP greening used in the Commission Staff Working Document (CSWD) 'Review of greening after one year’ (see: European Commission (2016), Impact Assessment, SWD(2016) 218 final).
- Scenar 2030 - Pathways for the European agriculture and food sector beyond 2020 (see: M’barek, et al. (2017) Scenar 2030 - Pathways for the European agriculture and food sector beyond 2020, EUR 28797 EN, Publications Office of the European Union, Luxembourg, ISBN 978-92-76-16663-4, doi:10.2760/43791, JRC108449.
- Impact assessment of "CAP post 2020" (see: European Commission (2018), Impact Assessment, SWD(2018) 301 final)
