Transcript

  • 1. General Equilibrium Simulations for the Foresight Future of Food and Farming Project <br />Sherman Robinson<br />December 2010<br />
  • 2. December 2008January 2011<br />Foresight Project Overview<br />Phase 3:<br />Report Production<br />Phase 1: <br /> Defining Challenge<br />Phase 2:<br /> How to Address <br />Challenge<br /><ul><li>Food Security: The Challenge of Feeding 9 Billion
  • 3. Driver Review Publication: The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B
  • 4. Five Challenges
  • 5. Drivers in the Food system
  • 6. Projected demand for food
  • 7. Projected supply of food
  • 8. Regional Reviews
  • 9. State of science reviews
  • 10. Workshops
  • 11. Africa workstream
  • 12. Modelling initiative with IFPRI &amp; IDS</li></ul>Release on January 25, 2011<br />
  • 13. Globe general equilibrium model to supplement IFPRI results<br />Multi-country, trade-focused, CGE model using the GTAP global data set<br />Simulates the operation of national economies operating in global markets<br />Solves for market clearing commodity prices and quantities (production and trade), both nationally and globally, given supply and demand in all markets<br />Comparative static simulations<br />3<br />
  • 14. Selected scenarios<br />Drought in NAFTA, China, and India<br />With and without agricultural export restrictions in exporting countries in response to rising prices<br />Doha failure: general increase in trade protectionism<br />Increased meat demand in India and China<br />Fossil fuel scarcity: climate change mitigation and/or peak oil<br />4<br />
  • 15. Drought: Largest price impacts where drought occurs<br />5<br />China, India, NAFTA<br />
  • 16. … Drought plus export limits changes trade flow volumes in different directions<br />6<br />
  • 17. Doha failure and more protection: Food prices rise everywhere<br />7<br />
  • 18. Increased India and China meat demand: Small effects on crop prices<br />8<br />
  • 19. … and crop production.<br />9<br />
  • 20. Fossil Fuel Scarcity: Welfare gains for exporting countries<br />10<br />
  • 21. Oil scarcity versus energy taxes: Indirect effects are small<br />11<br />
  • 22. Oil scarcity versus taxes: Changes in world food crop prices are small<br />12<br />
  • 23. Conclusions from CGE analysis<br />International trade is important <br />Ameliorates unequal distribution of supply-side shocks (e.g., droughts and climate change)<br />Increases in protectionism amplify stresses on the food system by increasing prices and encouraging production in less suitable areas<br />Increases in demand for livestock products in large countries such as China and India lead to modest increases in world food prices, with free trade<br />Protectionist response leads to bigger price effects<br />13<br />
