CGE Modelling Training
Inview of the growing use and potential of computable general equilibrium (CGE) modelling in trade and development policy research, SAWTEE and South Asian Network on Economic Modelling (SANEM) organized the Third South Asian Training Programme on CGE Modelling from 2–6 August 2010 in Kathmandu. A total of 29 researchers, academics and policy makers participated in the training.
The training built the capacity of researchers in South Asia, providing them with basic knowledge of CGE modelling using GAMS software. At the end of the training, participants viewed that this type of training contributes to rigorous research, and informed policy-making and implementation. SAWTEE and SANEM had organized two such training programmes, in 2008 and 2009.
