To introduce economic modelling tools that can provide technical support to Governments in policymaking , ESCWA held a webinar on “A Nontechnical Overview of Economic Modelling Tools for Public Policy and Impact: Morphing Knowledge into Practice".
Participants discussed the importance of adopting economic models to improve public policy, as well as the benefits and challenges in the Arab region regarding evidence-based policymaking.
ESCWA presented a modelling toolbox and explained how these tools can guide users through faster economic recovery from the current COVID-19 crisis with an emphasis on computable general equilibrium modelling.
