Development of a Geographical Simulation Model (IDE-GSM) and Geo-economic Dataset


The Geographical Simulation Model (GSM), which is a Computable General Equilibrium model based on Spatial Economics or New Economic Geography, has been developed by IDE. This research project aims to update and develop the model to make it more realistic and useful for various policy simulations. It also examines the possibility of constructing a geographical dataset for African countries.
