This report describes the rationale and performance of the integrated Modelling Platform for Agroeconomic Commodity and Policy Analysis (iMAP), hosted by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, Institute for Prospective Technological Studies in Seville. iMAP was created in order to provide a scientific basis for policy decision-making addressing a broad range of issues linked to the economic assessment of the Common Agricultural Policy and related topics such as trade, energy, environment, and climate change. The platform contains selected partial equilibrium and general equilibrium models, used in stand-alone mode or in combination.
