"Global models of trade in agriculture and related environmental modelling: a review and assessment"
by van Tongeren, Frank, Hans van Meijl and Yves Surry

The continuing process of global integration bears implications for farmers and related supplying and processing industries in all parts of the world. An assessment of agricultural and trade policy impacts is bound to be complex and is often supported by quantitative modeling analysis. This article provides an assessment of the present state of applied policy modelling in the area of trade and agricultural policies. We provide in this paper a comparative assessment of alternative modelling approaches, considering a total of sixteen partial equilibrium and general equilibrium models. The assessment includes theoretical modelling foundations, data sets employed and institutional aspects, such as model maintenance and dissemination of results. A typology of models is provided by structuring the assessment along a clear set of evaluation criteria.
