"Analysis of Exogenous Shocks and Policy Reforms in Guyana’s Agricultural Sector"
by Martin, Will and Jawoo Koo


Abstract
Guyana faces important new opportunities and challenges associated with an enormous offshore petroleum discovery. The Government has ambitious reform objectives and seeks to transform its agricultural sector through investments within the sector and in supporting infrastructure. The analysis to be presented uses a detailed geospatial model of the agricultural sector as a basis for analysis of reform options. This approach is chosen partly because of its power at capturing the detailed responses of the sector and partly because traditional databases such as Social Accounting Matrixes and household surveys are unavailable. Following the approach of important recent studies of global climate change, the modelling approach uses detailed geospatial information on over 20 crops in 727 fields within Guyana’s agricultural sector to represent the responses of the agricultural sector. The analysis captures both responses to the natural resource boom and of policy reforms such as investments in research and development, infrastructure, and pricing policies.
