Atelier sur « La modélisation macroéconomique des économies africaines » Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, du 19 au 28 février 2018

L’objectif principal de cette formation est d’équiper les économistes des pays membres régionaux (PMR) de compétences avec divers modèles macroéconomiques qu’ils pourront ensuite appliquer à leurs environnements politiques. Les compétences ainsi acquises leur permettront d’aider leurs pays à formuler des politiques éprouvées, dérivant des modèles et des résultats de leur estimation.

L’accent sera donc mis sur les modèles DSGE (Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium) car ceux-ci permettent une compréhension et une modélisation claires de l’interaction de nombreuses décisions macroéconomiques dans des contextes dynamiques et d’équilibre. Ces modèles permettront aux participants de tester les réponses économiques à divers chocs et politiques, de mener des expériences politiques, et d’évaluer les impacts économiques de leurs plans de transformation à moyen et à long terme. En outre, ces modèles capturent les principales particularités des économies africaines, telles que l’abondance des ressources, les liens entre l’investissement dans les infrastructures, le financement et la croissance, les frictions dans l’accès aux marchés internationaux des capitaux et bien d’autres.

Workshop on “Macroeconomic Modelling of African Economies” Nairobi, Kenya, April 23 to May 3, 2018

The main objective of this training is to equip Regional Member Country (RMC) economists with various macroeconomic models which they can apply in their policy environments and to enable them acquire the necessary modelling skills to be used to develop macroeconomic models for their countries. This will help these countries in formulating policies based on evidence derived from the models and their estimation results.

Emphasis in this training will thus be placed on Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models as they allow a clear understanding and modelling of the interaction of many macroeconomic decisions in dynamic and equilibrium settings. These models will allow participants to test economic responses to various shocks and policies, and to conduct policy experiments and assess the economic impacts of their medium-term and long-term transformational plans. Furthermore, these models capture the key peculiarities of African economies, such as resource abundance, infrastructure investment-financing-growth linkages, frictions in international capital market access and many others.

Macroeconomic Policy for Inclusive Growth, Employment Creation and Poverty Reduction

While African countries are witnessing growth resurgence since the turn of the century, they have not achieved commensurate progress in poverty reduction. A key reason is that growth has not generated proportionate job creation and that growth has not been broad based. Strategies to accelerate poverty reduction must therefore involve a refocusing of macroeconomic policy on ‘real’ development goals, notably employment creation and inclusive growth, over and beyond the traditional short-term objective of macroeconomic stability. In this context, this course discusses innovative policies for generating growth that is inclusive and accompanied by employment creation and poverty reduction. The course is organized around the eight topics described below. Selected readings are provided under each topic. More documentation will be provided during the workshop.
