Aglink: The Oecd Partial Equilibrium Model


  • Conforti, Piero
  • Londero, Pierluigi


The paper presents a general introduction to the structure and the characteristics of AGLINK, in comparison with the other most important global multi-commodity partial equilibrium models. Special reference is made to policy modelling, and particularly to the representation of the most important CAP tools, grouped into four types; direct price support, trade measures, supply management tools, and partially decoupled payments. The model is one of the most interesting efforts, especially in terms of its ability to effectively represent EU agricultural policy tools. The high level of institutional control exerted by the OECD member countries provides AGLINK with a particularly high-level of expertise, and a constant update of information; but it also prevents its results from being solely of a scientific nature.
