African Growth and Development Policy Modeling Consortium

The African Growth and Development Policy Modeling Consortium (AGRODEP) is an initiative aimed at positioning African experts to take a leading role in the study of strategic development questions and the broader agricultural growth and policy debate facing African countries. 

The AGRODEP web portal was developed and launched in October, 2011 to facilitate the implementation of four key components. The web portal provides information on AGRODEP news and events and gives AGRODEP members access to resources including Models, Data, Mapping tools, Wiki spaces for members’ scientific exchange, and a Resource Library that provides access to publications, presentations, training materials and much more.  

The AGRODEP Wiki is for all AGRODEP participants to collaboratively document progress on model development and data construction, develop shared standards, formats, and exchange protocols, ask questions to peers, share tips, and code files securely.
