Research Areas
  • Agriculture
ULYSSES project assess the literature on prices volatility of food, feed and non-food commodities. It attempt to determine the causes of markets' volatility, identifying the drivers and factors causing markets volatility. Projections for supply shocks, demand changes and climate change impacts on agricultural production are performed to assess the likelihood of more volatile markets. ULYSSES is concerned also about the impact of markets' volatility in the food supply chain in the EU and in developing countries, analysing traditional and new instruments to manage price risks. It also evaluates impacts on households in the EU and developing countries. Results will help the consortium draw policy-relevant conclusions that help the EU define market management strategies within the CAP after 2013 and inform EU?s standing in the international context. The project is led by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.
