Achieving Sustainable Irrigation Water Withdrawals: Global Impacts on Food Production and Land Use
27 Sep 2017 | Contributor(s): Jing Liu, Tom Hertel, Richard Lammers, Alexander A Prusevich, Uris Lantz C Baldos, Danielle Grogan, Steve Frolking
Unsustainable water use challenges the capacity of water resources to ensure food security and continued growth of the economy. Adaptation policies targeting future water security can easily overlook its interaction with other sustainability metrics and unanticipated local responses to the...
Analyzing Water Scarcity in Global CGE Models
08 Sep 2017 | Contributor(s): Jing Liu, Tom Hertel, Farzad Taheripour
Incorporating water into a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model operating at global scale can be extremely demanding due to the absence of standardized data, the sheer dimensions caused by intersecting river basins with countries, and difficulties to model demand for and supply of water....
Predicting Long Term Food Demand, Cropland Use and Prices
08 Sep 2017 | Contributor(s): Tom Hertel, Uris Lantz C Baldos, Dominique van der Mensbrugghe
This paper seeks to survey, understand and reconcile the widely divergent estimates of long run global crop output, land use and price projections in the current literature. We begin by reviewing the history of such projections and the different models and assumptions used in these exercises. We...
Debunking the 'New Normal': Why World Food Prices are Expected to Resume their Long run Downward Trend
08 Sep 2017 | Contributor(s): Uris Lantz C Baldos, Tom Hertel
Contrary to the opinions expressed by many commentators, the recent episode of higher prices for agricultural commodities is likely a transitory phenomenon. When compared to the last half-century, population growth is expected to be much slower in the coming decades, with nearly all of the growth...
