WP 1 : A macro-model of world regions

A macro-model of world regions  will provide forecasts of shifts in supply and demand of goods and services that may be expected to take place at world level under alternative hypotheses about growth and cooperation between different world regions. Trade and investment flows will also be tracked as well as the dynamics of productivity gains in various large sectors of activities.

These prospective exercises will facilitate use of common concepts and data across domains and provide a framework for integration of behavioural assumptions and governance scenarios. Historical data and an initial set of scenarios will be available for use by all partners from the start of the project and will be extended in response to their requirements and recommendations.
