BESTMAP - Redesigning Europe’s agricultural policy

BESTMAP is an international research project run by a consortium of 13 partners across 7 countries and funded through the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.

The main goal of BESTMAP is to improve and contribute to the existing tools used in agricultural policy impact assessment and to develop a new model-based approach to simulate the environmental impact of changes in the CAP, in order to promote a sustainable future for the EU’s agricultural sector.

The Research Group “Global and Regional Land-Use Change” contributes to the project by running scenarios on EU’s biofuel policies and international climate policies. Further, it will elaborate a concept to link economic modelling with individual-farm Agent-Based Models (ABM) aiming to improve the modelling of complex farmers' decision making in economic models.
