"The GTAP 10A Data Base with Agricultural Production Targeting Based on the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) Data"
by Chepeliev, Maksym

This document describes a new source of inputs, based on FAO data, that allows us to estimate agricultural output targets on 133 regions of the GTAP 10A Data Base. This approach allows to overcome several limitations present under the current agricultural production targeting (APT) processing. First, a significant expansion in the regional coverage is achieved, as the number of regions undergoing APT more than doubles. Second, the detailed commodity classification of the FAO dataset allows for a more accurate mapping to the GTAP Data Base sectors. Third, a better commodity coverage in the FAO data prevents the issue of mapping a processed commodities to the corresponding primary sector. Finally, reliance on the FAO agricultural output data provides a better opportunity for further incorporation of the nutritional accounts to the GTAP Data Base, by lowering inconsistencies between GTAP and FAO agricultural accounting. Comparisons between OECD-based agricultural output (currently used in the GTAP Data Base) and FAO-derived estimates are provided in the document. FAO-based agricultural production targets are incorporated to the GTAP 10A Data Base build stream to produce a special release of the GTAP Data Base.
JEL classification: C68, D57, D58, Q10, Q11.
Keywords: Agricultural production targeting, GTAP Data Base, Computable general equilibrium.
