2 This presentation is about: What is IndoTERM model?Analysis of palm-oil land moratorium using IndoTERM model
3 A large system of non-linear equation solved by specialized software IndoTERMEach region is modeled as a separate economy, prices are different across regions.Recursively run for every year toward 2030 through capital accumulation and other dynamic mechanismRegions are connected through inter-regional trade of commodities and factorsis a dynamic inter-regional, bottom-up, computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of the Indonesian economyMulti markets 175 COM33 REG175 IND9 LAB 1 CAP1 LNDA large system of non-linear equation solved by specialized softwareCover the whole national economy, generating standard macroeconomic variables
4 IndoTERM is a mathematical model which contains … many equations (a system of non-linear equations with n equations, n endogenous variables, and many exogenous variables)that determines prices and quantitiesof commodities (many of them)and inputs (including primary and intermediates)characterized byoptimizing rational economic agents (e.g. producers and consumers)who interact in a competitive market economysuch that all the markets are in equilibrium.

8 Research QuestionsWhat is the implication of Indonesian Moratorium on Palm Oil Expansion from natural forest?To what extent international transfer can mitigate its negative economic impact?
9 Scenarios and Assumptions In the baseline, palm oil land grow by 3-8% per year toward 2030½ of the land expansion come from natural forest, another ½ from production forest.In scenario 1 (S1), expansion of palm oil land from natural forest is stopped in 2015 onward.In scenario 2 (S2), expansion of palm oil land from natural forest is stopped in 2015 onward and Indonesia receives international transfers amount to $10x[CO2 emissions avoided]Transfers is given directly to household in each region (in proportion to the region’s avoided emissions) to be spent on consumption.
10 Incorporating carbon emissions from land use change in IndoTERM We estimate the carbon intensity per ha for each region and each land-using sector, including natural forest areaWe added carbon emissions equation, and international transfers equation for avoided emissions.

13 GDP, Consumption, and GNE (% deviation from baseline) Note: GDP = C + I + G + X – MGNE = C + I + G
14 Household consumption by region in 2030 (% deviation from baseline)
15 Household consumption by provinces in 2030 (% deviation from baseline)
16 Highlights Impact on Indonesian GDP is negative but small International transfers does not offset the impact on national GDPYet, international transfers (nationally) still make Indonesian on average better-off if consumption or national expenditure is a measure of welfare. This is the nature of international financing.The effect varies widely across regionsSumatera, and Western Kalimantan (West Kalimantan & Central Kalimantan) are the most heavily affected with moratorium without transfers.Western Kalimantan benefit the most from international transfers.International transfers does not offset the loss welfare of Sumatera.Policy implication: Should there be any mechanism of equalization of the benefit of international transfers, if something like this happen?
