Day 1.3 impact 3 updates and improvements

  1. 1. IMPACT 3.2 – Improvements and Updates Daniel Mason-D’Croz
  2. 2. IMPACT 3 Review • Disaggregated agricultural commodities (56 commodities) • Disaggregated spatial allocation of crop production at sub-national level (159 countries, 154 watersheds, and 320 food production units) • Details on physical use of land and water, trade policies, with resulting trade • World food prices are determined annually at levels that clear international commodity markets • Iterative year-by-year demand and supply equilibration • Output indicators – calorie availability, malnutrition measures, share at risk of hunger, water consumption, yield growth and total production, area
  3. 3. IMPACT 3 Review • Food production is driven by both economic and environmental factors and has both extensive and intensive components (area x yield) • On the production side the model also accounts for the presence of irrigation and for exogenous technological change • Food demand is a function of commodity prices, income, and population • Feed demand is a function of livestock production, feed prices, and feeding efficiency • Other demand changes proportionally to food and feed demand • Biofuel demand an exogenous calculation of demand for feedstock from different commodities (sugar, oils, maize, other) to meet a share of mandates in major countries
  4. 4. IMPACT Spatial Resolution 4 159 • Countries 154 • Water Basins 320 • Food Production Units
  5. 5. Data Sources IMPACT Parameter Data Source 2005 World Prices (USD/mt) OECD-AMAD Population (million) GDP (billion USD, PPP) WDI and CIA World Factbook Total Supply (000 mt) - Animals (000 animals), Harvest Area (000 ha) and Yield (mt/ha or animal) Total Demand (000 mt) - Food, Feed, Intermediate, and Other Trade and stock changes (000 mt) FAOSTAT Commodity Balances Calorie Availability FAOSTAT Food Supply Total national irrigated area FAO AquaStatand OECD By production system at pixel level (irr/rfd) - Harvest Area, Yield, Production IFPRI SPAM Demand Elasticities (Price and Income) USDA and expert opinion Supply Elasticities Expert opinion Marketing Margins OECD and expert opinion PSE and CSEs OECD and expert opinion Tariffs and Taxes GTAP Exogenous Yield Growth Rates (IPRs) Historical trends and expert opinion Population and GDP Growth Rates SSP Database Climate Shocks Simulated in DSSAT for 7 crops with 4 GCMS and RCP 8.5
  6. 6. • FAO Bulk Download for 3-year average around 2005 (04-06) • Harmonized SPAM/IMPACT commodity, and geographic definitions • Bayesian Work Plan – Iterate with new information 6 Processing FAO Data Source Data (FAO, SPAM) Feedback to data source Priors on values and estimation errors of production, demand, and trade Estimation by Cross- Entropy Method Check results against priors and identify potential data problems New information to correct identified problems
  7. 7. IMPACT System of Models
  8. 8. Water Models GCM RCP Crop Models Historical Trends and Expert Opinion Exogenous Endogenous Exogenous + Endogenous Yield Effects
  9. 9. No Immediate DSSAT Proxy for the IMPACT Crop Biophysically Similar Crops Mapping DSSAT Results to IMPACT DSSAT • Maize • Wheat • Rice • Sorghum • Soybeans • Groundnuts • Potatoes IMPACT • Barley • Other Cereals Wheat • Sugarcane Maize • Millet Sorghum • Pulses (chickpeas, pigeon peas, beans, cowpeas) Groundnuts 1 to 1 Mapping • Roots and Tubers • Fruits and Vegetables • Oilseed Crops • All other crops (incl stimulants, sugar beets, and cotton) Average of C3 Crops (all DSSAT crops excl. maize)
