(Video) AGRODEP WEAI Training Part 3: Collecting the WEAI Data

The third training video focuses on the collection of data for the Women's Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI). It provides insights on sampling and best practices in survey design and implementation.

The training videos were recorded during the 2016 AGRODEP Training Course on Tools for Value Chain Analysis held in March 28 - April 1, 2016 in Dakar, Senegal. The training course was attended by twelve members of the AGRODEP Value Chain Analysis group. Support was provided by the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) under the Value Chain Analysis Virtual Hub project.

(Video) AGRODEP WEAI Training Part 4: Constructing the WEAI

The fourth training video focuses on the construction of the Women's Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI). It includes the conceptual underpinnings including the Alkire-Foster methodology for poverty measurement and its adaptation to the measurement of women's empowerment.

The training videos were recorded during the 2016 AGRODEP Training Course on Tools for Value Chain Analysis held in March 28 - April 1, 2016 in Dakar, Senegal. The training course was attended by twelve members of the AGRODEP Value Chain Analysis group. Support was provided by the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) under the Value Chain Analysis Virtual Hub project.

(Vidéo) Formation GAMS AGRODEP Leçon 10: Problèmes de complémentarité mixte (version française)

La leçon 10 familiarise les utilisateurs avec la programmation des Problèmes de Complémentarité Mixte (MCPs) où un programme se compose de contraintes d'inégalité qui sont complémentaires les unes avec les autres. Cette dernière leçon de la formation AGRODEP GAMS suppose une certaine familiarité avec la modélisation économique. Le modèle présenté ici est similaire au modèle utilisé dans la leçon 8. Dans cette leçon, cependant, il suppose un salaire minimum qui pourrait être contraignant et inclut donc un chômage potentiel dans la solution du modèle. Le code GAMS utilisé dans cette leçon est partiellement basé sur le 'Guide de l'utilisateur GAMS' de McCarl.

(Video) AGRODEP GAMS Training Lesson 10: Mixed Complementarity (English)

Lesson 10 introduces users to the programming of Mixed Complementarity Problems (MCPs) where a program consists of inequality constraints that are complementary to one another. This final lesson of the AGRODEP GAMS training assumes familiarity with economic modeling. The model presented here is similar to the model in Lesson 8. In this lesson, however, it assumes a minimum wage that could be binding and therefore includes possible unemployment in the model solution. GAMS code in this lesson is partially based on the McCarl GAMS User Guide.

La leçon 9 présente comment introduire des comportement stochastique dans des modèles. Les utilisateurs disposent d'un aperçu de la génération de nombres aléatoires dans GAMS et des instructions sur la façon d'utiliser ces valeurs aléatoires pour les simulations stochastiques. Le même modèle que celui de la leçon 8 est utilisé dans cette leçon.

(Vidéo) Formation GAMS AGRODEP Leçon 8: Programmation d'un modele d'Equilibre Général Calculable (version française)

La leçon 8 va de la syntaxe à l'application en mettant l'accent sur la modélisation en équilibre général. Cette leçon utilise un modèle simple d'équilibre général calculable (EGC) développé par Antoine Bouet de l'International Food Policy Research Institute et introduit la théorie économique derrière ce modèle. Ensuite, la leçon décrit la structure générale GAMS d'un modèle EGC, y compris le calibrage, la définition du modèle, l'initialisation des paramètres et variables, et la résolution. Des connaissances de base en modélisation économique sont requises dans cette leçon.

(Video) AGRODEP GAMS Training Lesson 8: Programming a General Equilibrium Model (English)

Lesson 8 moves from syntax to application by focusing on general equilibrium modeling. This lesson uses a simple Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model developed by Antoine Bouet of the International Food Policy Research Institute and introduces the economic theory behind this model. Next, the lesson describes the general GAMS structure of a CGE model, including calibration, model definition, parameter initialization, and solution. Basic economic modeling knowledge is assumed in this lesson.
