The AGRODEP GAMS Training Toolbox is intended to assist those interested in economic modeling-- including but not limited to general and partial equilibrium models as well as optimization problems-- by teaching them to use the GAMS software, a cornerstone of many modeling efforts. These economic models can be used to conduct research on a wide range of topics, such as analysis of various forms of policies, issues pertaining to agricultural growth and poverty, climate change, natural resource management, and the role of science and technology.

La Boîte à Outils "Formation GAMS AGRODEP" vise à aider ceux qui s'intéressent à la modélisation économique, incluant (sans s'y limiter) les modèles d'équilibre général et partiel ainsi que les problèmes d'optimisation, en leur apprenant à se servir du logiciel GAMS, un instrument essentiel dans les pratiques contemporaines de modélisation.

The approach of this macroeconometric modelling method is unique in two ways: First, it will be extremely developed, with the goal of giving modelers a complete set of elements which will allow them to build their own models. To this end, our presentation is complemented by examples using the EViews software, from general strategies to technical details. The associated programs and files are provided. Second, it will focus on Africa, to which all our examples will relate.

The Supply and Demand Elasticities Toolbox provides a technical guide, Stata code, and data files to estimate supply and demand elasticities. The first portion of the guide is dedicated to the estimation of elasticities in producer theory and portion two is dedicated to elasticities in consumer theory. This toolbox is restricted to AGRODEP members and AGRODEP affiliate members only.
