Abstract: The quantitative analysis and assessment of agricultural, rural development and related policies (e.g. trade, energy, environment, and climate change) is an important contribution to the policy-making process in these areas. To guarantee timely, confidential, tailor-made and scientifically sound support to policy makers, a modelling platform has been built up at the Commission’s Joint Research Centre premises that includes selected partial equilibrium models (AGLINK, CAPRI, ESIM) and general equilibrium models (GLOBE, MAGNET). iMap not only allows the most appropriate selection to be made from these models for a specific policy question, but also facilitates the comparisons of results between models in order to substantiate the findings. Analysing model performance in policy relevant applications provides the necessary feedback to decide about the future development needs of the models. This paper describes the iMAP approach and gives some insights into current applications in the field of model integration for agricultural policy analysis.
