Resumen

Nuestro objetivo es evaluar los impactos sectoriales y sobre la pobreza de los cambios en la política agrícola en Colombia. Para ello, utilizamos un modelo de equilibrio general estático computable especializado en agricultura, junto con un modelo de microsimulación que permite que el empleo cambie de sector. Los resultados indican que el impacto sectorial de los cambios de política tiende a ser pequeño y que varía considerablemente de un cultivo a otro. El modelo macroeconómico produce algunas ganancias en salarios y rentas del capital, un aumento relativamente mayor en las rentas de la tierra y una reasignación limitada de la mano de obra, lo que, en conjunto, conduce a pequeños impactos en la pobreza calculados a través del modelo de microsimulación. La incidencia de la pobreza rural disminuye en menos del 1% y lo mismo ocurre con la brecha de pobreza. Además, la reducción de la pobreza se concentra en los hogares que se encuentran cerca de la mitad de la distribución del ingreso.
