Article
Physical availability and adequate distribution of irrigation water are two globally pressing resource management issues. In the long run, the design of irrigation infrastructure should be based on the economic value of irrigation water, taking into account a full analysis of all associated costs and benefits. In the absence of water markets, non-m...
Article
Market-based water allocation systems have the potential to ensure that scarce water will flow to the user who earns the highest marginal value from that water. However, the number of recorded instances where water supply problems are solved by market-based systems remains limited. This study attempts to identify the decisive factors that motivate...
Article
Food price volatility has re-emerged as an important topic of political discussion since the food price crisis of 2007–2008. Different volatility drivers have been identified for different markets in the theoretical and empirical literature. However, there is no comprehensive analysis that considers a large number of potential drivers and investiga...
Article
This study highlights the methodological challenges in determining the value of water in informal water markets. As the decision to participate in water markets is unlikely to be random, self-selectivity is an important issue for an unbiased estimation of the participating farmers’ revealed willingness to pay. The relevance of these issues is illus...

The focus of this paper is on the analysis of market imperfections in the French and U.K. wheat value chains. We used mark-up and mark-down models and stochastic frontier analysis to estimate the degree of market imperfections in two completely different wheat-to-bread chains for two stages/sectors—milling and baking. Our results reveal some degree...

The war in Ukraine has aggravated existing tensions on the agricultural commodities market. Since late 2021, prices for commodities such as grains and vegetable oils have reached record highs, surpassing even the levels of the global food price crises of more than a decade ago. Now, the invasion of Russian forces in Ukraine has sent prices soaring...

Upon the Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24th February 2022, the bells started to ring in international agricultural and food markets. The war has the basic potential to threaten the international food security in short-run and medium-run in three different domains. These domains are supply shortages of basic staple commodities such as wheat and cor...

System dynamics and agent-based simulation modelling approaches have a potential as tools to evaluate the impact of policy related decision making in food value chains. The context is that a food value chain involves flows of multiple products, financial flows and decision making among the food value chain players. Each decision may be viewed from...

The cultivation of saffron, which is one of the most expensive agricultural products in the world, is the main source of livelihood and economic wellbeing for the rural communities of Gona-bad county in the eastern part of Iran. Nevertheless, farm monitoring in the region has shown that many saffron growers apply a high-density planting system for...

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is the top destination for Russian food exports, grains in particular. Focusing on Turkey, Egypt, Iran, and Saudi Arabia, this chapter shows that Russia’s food trade with MENA countries is strongly affected by bilateral political relations. Russia banned most food imports from Turkey over a political c...

Russia’s food policy has been defined by the quest for food security for more than a decade, which in the Russian context includes import protectionism, self-sufficiency, and import substitution, marked by the adoption of Food Security Doctrines in 2010 and 2020. This chapter first investigates the impact of food security policy on domestic product...

Many different events happened in 2014 that affected Russia's domestic markets. Among different dairy products, cheese has been the one for which domestic production has significantly increased and cheese import decreased since the summer of 2014. This paper aims to explore the effects of trade policies and other macroeconomic changes in 2014 on ch...

Unchecked food price volatility can have significant consequences for people's livelihoods and well-being in terms of food security, rural development and political stability. Understanding the factors behind this phenomenon holds particular concern for producers, consumers, and policy-makers, who face the adverse effects of agricultural market sho...

The depletion of groundwater resources due to irrigation water pumping in Iran has become a serious problem that threatens both rural life and sustainable development in the country. The latest estimates show that 70% of groundwater resources have been overexploited over the last 15 years. The number of deep and shallow wells used for groundwater i...

The pork sector has been at the centre of Russi a’s agricultural import substitution policy which was initiated i n 2004 with the introduction of a pork import tax . In the aftermath of Russia’s WTO access in 2012, the Russian government restricted pork imports rather by non - tariff barriers, especially th e food import ban , which was implemented...

The pork sector has been at the centre of Russia’s import substitution policy which successfully has increased Russia’s pork self-sufficiency to 88% in the last years. However, this policy is facing several challenges. Results of a DCC-MGARCH model confirm our hypothesis that price volatility and thus risk have increased strongly in the pork supply...

The pork sector has been at the centre of Russia’s import substitution policy. It has shown a very dynamic development reaching the government’s aim to increase self-sufficiency to 85% in 2015. However, this policy is facing several challenges. Results of a DCC-MGARCH model confirm our hypothesis that price volatility and thus risk have increased s...

In this chapter, we assess the development of price volatility in major agricultural markets over the past years. We base this analysis on univariate GARCH models for the commodities under consideration, and then analyse these estimated volatilities further with a specific focus on spillovers between closely related agricultural markets. These vola...

In this study we present the historical trend of energy prices in agriculture and non-agricultural sectors in Iran. The number of wells and general groundwater depletion are also presented for the same period.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Understanding the economic value of water can inform decision makers of the full social benefits and costs of water use, which is of particular importance in agriculture with its huge and often heavily subsidised water use. In the few available irrigation water markets, the price that is paid for an extra unit of irrigation water reflects the willi...
Thesis

This dissertation is divided to three essays that summarise groundwater demand studies in pistachio production of the Rafsanjan aquifer in southeastern Iran from three different methodological approaches. It is said that groundwater is the world's most extracted raw material, but its use and management have yet to be fully quantified. The work cove...

Depletion of groundwater resources is an international problem, and groundwater is probably the world’s most extracted raw material. The agriculture sector is one of the biggest users of groundwater resources for irrigation activities and plays an important role in the depletion of these resources.

Project
The overall objective of the VALUMICS project is to provide decision makers throughout food value chains with a comprehensive suite of approaches and tools that will enable them to evaluate the impact of strategic and operational policies and enhance the resilience, integrity, and sustainability of food value chains for European countries. The VALUMICS project offers a comprehensive and multi-dimensional scope that will go beyond the current state of the art to provide new approaches and tools for stakeholders on several fronts. This includes new modeling approaches, consumer research, foresight analysis and synthesis into policy options, adding new perspectives for policy makers, both in government and within the food industry sector. The dynamics within the food systems will be modeled using a causal loop analysis framework, covering the interconnected value, supply, and decision chains.
