Modelling Individual Decisions to Support
the European Policies Related to Agriculture

Key policy questions for ex-ante impact assessment of European agricultural and rural policies

New  scientific publication is out!

Policies in the agricultural and rural sectors are of key importance in shaping their sustainable development. These policies are changing from market-based policies to policies that aim to influence farmers' decision-making. Thus, the scientific literature supporting evidence-based policy-making must develop models that simulate individual decision-making (IDM) by farmers. This study aims to understand key policy objectives, related policy questions and benchmark scenarios relevant to the European agricultural sector to define the research agenda for a suite of IDM models.
