EMM model

The Economy-Wide Multi-Market (EMM) model is based on neoclassical microeconomic theory. In the model, an aggregate producer represents a specific zone’s production of a specific sector. In this application for Ethiopia, there are a total of 2,352 such representative producers. Consistent with the setup of many other multi-market models, the supply function is used to capture each representative producer’s response to market conditions.
