Topic 1: Overview of GTAP

  • Software installation
    • Training motivation
    • Baselines for Dynamic CGE Models

Topic 2: Overview andIntroduction to RunDynam

Topic 3: Overview of the GTAP Data Base

Topic 4: Overview of GTAP Models and Simulation

Topic 5:  GTAP & Baseline Aggregation Utility

Requirements: A minimum of BA/BSc degree in economics and related fields. In addition, exposure to analytical software packages such as STATA is required. The trainer should bring personal laptop computer.
