Advanced Training in CGE and GAMS

Organized in collaboration with the Human Science Research Council (HSRC, see information below), the PEP School will be held in Pretoria, South Africa, from November 5-16th, 2012  (see Delivery Mode below for detailed schedule).

This particular course will train participants in constructing (CGE) models of their national economy, and conducting simulations in order to forecast the impact of macroeconomic shocks and/or policies on an economy’s multiple agents, sectors and the various dimensions of poverty and welfare within the country.

CGE modeling techniques

PEP activities in terms of training and innovations in the field of economic modelling stand out among the Network’s most widely acknowledged contributions to the advancement of policy analysis in development economics. PEP resource persons are internationally known for developing a series of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) reference models that allow more country-specific and extensive applications, especially in the context of developing country economies.

This particular “advanced program” is tailored for participants who have already followed basic training in CGE modelling – preferably from PEP – but note that all applications will be considered.
