Abstract: Since 2012 the JRC has been working on the development of a water module in the CAPRI model to allow expanding the analysis of agricultural policy to cover water related issues. This report describes the latest improvements to the module including the change to 2012 base year, the update of the water data used and the spatial coverage, the inclusion of water as a production factor for rain-fed agriculture. In addition, it describes several aspects for further developments of the CAPRI water module, such as: to account for competition between agricultural and non-agricultural water use as well as extending the water module to non-EU regions. The usefulness of the update is shown with two stylized scenarios reflecting impacts of climate change both in terms of less water availability for irrigation and precipitation.
