Analyzing the effects of changes in the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy requires tools on various analytical levels: from world markets to individual farms. Such a "funnel" of models is available at the Agricultural Economics Research Institute (LEI), The Netherlands. This article first describes the models and then refers to a case study to explain both the links between and the co-operation of models. The role of general equilibrium models, in particular of the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP), which is at the top of the "funnel", is highlighted.
