The goal is to enable participants learn about how economic models are built and to use models to enquire and answer questions regarding how shocks affect the economy. This course aims to develop participants understanding and use of different models in the analysis of national economies and its sectors. Topics will typically include relevant economic theory, development of models and the interpretation of results. The emphasis throughout is on familiarizing participants with the practical application of multi-sectoral modelling techniques to address important issues in development economics and policy analysis.
