Solution concept The models can run scenarios as a stand-alone application or linked through a soft-link process.
Solution method The COFFEE model is solved through Linear Programming (LP). The TEA model is formulated as a mixed complementary problem (MCP) and is solved through Mathematical Programming System for General Equilibrium -- MPSGE within GAMS using the PATH solver.
Anticipation

The spatial dimension of the COFFEE and TEA models covers 18 regions, as shown in Table 1.

Table 1: COFFEE-TEA spatial breakdown
Code Country / Region Code Country / Region
AFR Africa JPN Japan
AUS Australia and New Zealand KOR South Korea
BRA Brazil MEA Middle East
CAM Central America RAS Rest of Asia and Oceania
CAN Canada RUS Russia
CAS Caspian Region SAF South Africa
CHN China SAM South America
EEU Europe USA United States
IND India WEU Rest of Europe

In addition, the COFFEE models has a global region represented as the 19th region of the model.
