Abstract

In this chapter, we use the market and spatial evidence reviewed in Chapters 2, 3, and 4, in conjunction with a multi-market equilibrium displacement model (Dynamic Research EvaluAtion for Management, or Dream), to assess the potential economic benefits arising from research-induced improvements in the local and spillover productivity performance of important agricultural commodities in LAC. Before doing so, however, we first place these R&D potentials in a broader market context using a recent, updated application of IFPRI’s International Model for Policy Analysis of Agricultural Commodities and Trade (IMPACT).
