The Common Agricultural Policy Regional Impact Analysis (CAPRI) model is an EU-wide agricultural sector model designed to support the analysis and evaluation of regional and aggregate impacts of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), of European agri-environmental measures and of agricultural regional or global trade policies on production, income, markets, trade and the environment within 250 regions covering EU-25, Norway, Bulgaria and Romania.
CAPRI is often used to simulate and compare ex-ante impacts of different sets of CAP-agricultural policies for EU-25.
The model covers some 40 agricultural products (all agriculture, according to the definition of the Economic Accounts for Agriculture), and uses for the evaluations harmonised Pan-European and international databases such as EUROSTAT, FADN, FAO, ILO, AMAD.
The model was used to predict livestock numbers and the associated ammonia emissions.
