Economic modelling as a service


Development advances are constrained by inefficient solutions and allocation of resources. By assessing ‘what-if’ questions and forecasting the effects of a particular intervention, policy or shock, it is possible to identify the most effective available option.

Our team of experts is ready to assist in applying a vast range of economic modelling techniques to deliver valuable insights and advice into development interventions, policies and initiatives, solve complex problems and measure impacts, synergies and trade-offs.

Frequently asked questions

    What’s economic modelling?

    Economic modelling refers to the development of a model that is a simplified representation of the real world and is useful in supporting decision-making. It is based on a specific design/structure, a range of modelling assumptions, and a set of input parameters.  

    What type of economic modelling are available?

    Our team of experts uses a vast range of economic modelling techniques, such as Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) modelling, cost-benefit analysis, macro/microsimulation, and quasi experimental/experimental methods. We are also ready to assist with the development of survey instruments and analysis of large and complex datasets. 

    What kind of data is needed?

    Our team can advise on the best and most suitable data sources available in a particular area/topic. The team can also make use of on-demand datasets – shared by clients, UNDP Country Offices or other partners.
