Since Jan Tinbergen’s original formulation (Tinbergen 1962), gravity has long been one of the most successful empirical models in economics. Incorporating the theoretical foundations of gravity into recent practice has led to a richer and...

This technical note aims to introduce a spatial equilibrium model (SEM) to AGRODEP members. Specifically, by using simplified data, a pedagogic tool is developed to explain the design of a spatial equilibrium model. The potential uses of the...

In this paper, we study the sensitivity of computable general equilibrium (CGE) models to the choice of macroeconomic closure rule using the case of the standard IFPRI model for Nigeria and Tanzania. Two sets of simulations are performed: a 50...

The objective of this technical note is to compare four methods (CE, OLS, Huber and Hellinger’s methods) for updating and balancing a SAM. Unlike previous studies, the contributions of this note are:

i. Going beyond the traditional...
