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.

PETS is a multi-region, multi-sector, dynamically recursive,  and partial equilibrium (PE) model. The model developed in Fontagne, Laborde, and Mitaritonna (2011) focuses on trade policy analysis using disaggregated geographical and sectoral levels of data.  The model emphasizes the demand side, which is specified as a nested CES structure, where the initial regional income is assumed to be fixed. The demand is expressed at various levels of disaggregation matched by increasing substitutability (elasticity of substitution increases with higher level of disaggregation).

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.
