DOCUMENTATION: agricultural sector model EPICA (The Evaluation of Policy Impacts – Climate and Agriculture Model)
We are pleased to publish the technical documentation of the agricultural sector model EPICA (The Evaluation of Policy Impacts – Climate and Agriculture Model), thus extending the information package concerning models built at the Centre for Climate and Energy Analysis (CAKE) available on our website.
- The main task of the model is to analyse the impacts of climate and energy policy on agriculture.
- The EPICA model consists of two integrated modules – market module and farm module – combining a partial equilibrium approach with linear farm activity optimisation programming. This enables the simulation of a proper supply-demand balance of goods produced in the agricultural sector, as well as provides a detailed disaggregation of analysed farm activities.
- The construction of the EPICA model supports interaction with other CAKE analytical tools, including in particular the d-PLACE model and the MEESA model.
- Documentation for EPICA model is available in english:
