Welcome to the AGMEMOD Project
AGMEMOD is a network of agricultural economists working with a partial equilibrium model, also called AGMEMOD. The name stands for AGricultural MEmber State MODelling. In the earlier stages of AGMEMOD, the AGMEMOD network consisted of economists from EU Member States and EU Candidate Countries (Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey) and other European countries (Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan). An annual Outlook is produced at Member State level for the European Union.
Since 2013, economists from diverse African countries have implemented the AGMEMOD model and work with it on a regular basis to analyse the effects of national policies on agricultural commodity markets. The objectives of the African countries working with AGMEMOD are mainly: to identify policies to abate poverty or to provide advice to stakeholders from the African Union (AU) or from their national countries on the effects of agricultural policies on food security. AGMEMOD country models, in the African context, are available for Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya and Rwanda. All modelling groups that become members of the AGMEMOD network sign an agreement concerning the common ownership of the models developed and associated analytic results.
