Abstract

Understanding the nature and dimensions of the world food problem and the policies available to alleviate it has been the focal point of the IIASA Food and Agriculture Program since it began in 1977.

National food systems are highly interdependent, and yet the major policy options exist at the national level. Therefore, to explore these options, it is necessary both to develop policy models for national economies and to link them together by trade and capital transfers. For greater realism the models in this scheme are being kept descriptive, rather than normative. In the end it is proposed to link models to twenty countries, which together account for nearly 80 per cent of important agricultural attributes such as area, production, population, exports, imports and so on.

As part of the development of the Polish Agricultural Model, Marek Makowski and Janusz Sosnowski have investigated the coordination of sectoral production planning in Poland. Since this work involved methodological innovations, it was carried out in joint collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Program (FAP) and the Systems and Decision Sciences Area of IIASA.

This paper presents intermediate results of research done within the framework of the elaboration of the Polish Agricultural model, which will not only be included in the system of models of the FAP, but will also be used for decision-making processes in Poland.
