  3. 3. MIRAGE• Computable General Equilibrium• Development started in 2001 in CEPII, Paris• Initial focus on trade issues• Multi country, Multi sector: Global model• Dynamic recursive• Main source of data: GTAP database• Numerous extensions: Exist version that allows trade modeling at the product level, FDI etc.• GAMS basedINTERNATIONAL FOOD POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Page 2
  4. 4. Why Land Use is important?• Starting point: Trade liberalization • Agriculture is the most protected sector • Large tariff heterogeneity • Land is a production factor ! Mobility & Supply • Trade liberalization = Efficiency gains = Reallocation of production among sectors • Role of Land Mobility: perfect (e.g. most of LINKAGE simulations WB) or imperfect (MIRAGE): x2 gains for developing countries• Beyond trade liberalization: role in the baseline  relative prices between agriculture and the rest of the economy• First implementation in MIRAGE (at the „country‟ level): • Imperfect land substitution: CET • Isoelastic land supply• And then Land Use related emissionsINTERNATIONAL FOOD POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Page 3
  5. 5. One challenge: data• Different databases • FAO, IIASA, M3 • Not harmonized (within datasets / between datasets) • Poor quality of time series • Multi cropping • Problems on croplands, pasture, suitable land • Information on protected lands• Consequences on yields, land availability, estimationINTERNATIONAL FOOD POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Page 4

  26. 26. Major Efforts on Data: from Values to Quantities• Improvement from GTAP7 • Split for fertilizers and fossil fuels • Disaggregation with specific procedure for Maize, Soybeans, Sunflower seed, Palm fruit, Rapeseed + relevant Oils + Co-products • Production targeting (FAO) for all relevant crops • Creation of a “harmonized” price database for calibration • Case of co-products • Creation of Ethanol and Biodiesel (2008 trade and production structure). • Correction of some I-O data (e.g. China)• Land use (AEZ GTAP database 2001  2004, + consistency with FAO and M3) • Correction for Sugar cane AEZ in BrazilINTERNATIONAL FOOD POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Page 25

Livestock Sector and IntensificationTraditional approach Intensification approach• Feedstock  Intermediate • Like fertilizers consumption • Ratio price of land/price of• Intermediate consumption & feedstocks  Producer choice Value Added (including Land) • Increase in price of feedstock  complementary Substitution effect =• Increase in feedstock prices  Intensification + Overall price Increase in production cost  effect = reduction in production Decrease in demand   Overall, potential increase in Decrease in production  Land use Decrease in Land Use + Limitations in the interactions between pasture land and crop lands (P0/P1/P2)INTERNATIONAL FOOD POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Page 36

  42. 42. Technical issues: land substitution (1)• CET function: concavity corn • Aimed to capture imperfect transformation • Adjustment costs / stylised facts • Changes in productivity• Nested CET: consequences ofconcavity • Sum (i, Land_i) ≠ CET (Land_I) wheat • In the model / out of the model rescaling • In MIRAGE: in the model• CET: • Good in static • More problematic in dynamics: • Adjustment costs based on calibration year. • Recalibration issueINTERNATIONAL FOOD POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Page 41
  43. 43. Technical issues: land substitution (2)• CET: Which elasticities? • Poor estimates in the literature • In many cases, indirect estimates • Past estimates / future behaviour: the role of policy reform• Ongoing researches: • Crop rotation and crop complementarities • Alternative functional form: from nested CET to CRESH (or better, more flexible functional form). • Conversion costs: problem of expectation and fixed costsINTERNATIONAL FOOD POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Page 42
  44. 44. Technical issue: Productivity of new land• Initially:based on IMAGE model. Interesting, complex, but seems not very robust (very complex issue: short term/long term)• Now: fixed marginal productivity in terms of average productivity : 0.5 for everyone, 0.75 for BrazilINTERNATIONAL FOOD POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Page 43
