"Going beyond the magic 57 – Challenges to develop a detailed Single-country CGE for Germany"
by Rothe, Andrea, Martin Banse and Scott McDonald

This paper explores the development of a detailed single country CGE model for Germany, where the main challenges are associated with the development of a bio-based Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) together with the requisite satellite accounts. The distinctive features of the model derive from the focus of the analyses being on the impact of agricultural and energy policies on all sectors of the bio-based economy in Germany; in particular the agricultural, food and chemical sectors will be modeled at a more disaggregated level than in the standard national accounts database. This requires additional disaggregation of inputs - intermediate use and final demand, outputs – joint- and by-production within agriculture and its use for further processing, and of agricultural and bio-based policy instruments. The main challenge therefore is the further disaggregation of the agricultural, food, ‘chemical’ and energy sectors in existing SAMs for Germany.
