KIPPRA Policy Analysts participated in a training workshop on Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) from 30th January to 3rd February 2023. The training was facilitated by Dr Emanuele Ferrari and Dr Victor Nechifor from EU Commission’s Joint Research Centre. The training was also attended by KIPPRA Director Integrated Development Dr Moses Muthinja and Director Economic Management Dr Eldah Onsomu.
CGE is a vital model in policy analysis. It allows for the analysis of complex, multi-sectoral policies, which can have both direct and indirect effects on different parts of the economy. The model is used by policymakers, researchers, and analysts to inform decision-making and assess the potential impacts of policy changes.
