GTAP University (GTAP-U): Short Courses in Dynamic Global Trade Analysis

Background and Objectives
The objective of this course is to introduce participants to dynamic economic analysis in an applied general equilibrium setting. This course is designed to provide participants with ample hands-on training with software that has been tailored for undertaking analysis using a dynamic recursive model. Participants will interact with economists working on global trade and environmental issues using a dynamic model. The end goal of the course is for participants to leave with the capability of conducting and analyzing their own dynamic simulations.

Features of the GTAP-Recursive Dynamics (GTAP-RD) model include: Course participants will learn to aggregate their economic database and develop a business-as-usual scenario using information from the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways, which has been annualized for ease of use.

It is expected that applicants have undertaken courses on multi-region general equilibrium (GE) analysis or have completed a significant piece of analysis using a dynamic multi-region GE model or another, comparable, general equilibrium model. Please contact the Center for Global Trade Analysis for further information.
