Event

(© Thünen-Institut)

Summer School 2017

The main focus of this Summer School is to develop develop a country model following the AGMEMOD framework together with African scientists to assess the agricultural markets in their countries. The future development of the agricultural markets in Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia, taking into account existing couplings and feedback effects from farms and country-specific structures is an important part of the program in the Summer School 2017.

Potential participants

German and African junior scientists as well as scientists from other developing countries as well as  stakeholders in developing countries, etc.

Venue

Forum of the Thünen Institute, Braunschweig, Deutschland

Participant‘s requirements and Nationality

A maximum of 20 participants will be invited: German, African scientists as well as scientists from other developing countries, stakeholders in developing countries. A basic requirement is the availability of the database from the country of the potential participant.

Contents

The summer school will take place in five days. In the first days of the Summer School 2017 "AGMEMOD goes Africa" we will develop an agricultural country model for those countries who have submitted the database.  . Due to the complexity of the couplings and the feedback effects of agricultural markets and country-specific structures, a single model has to be developed for each country. In the second half of the Summer School, the impacts of new agricultural policies and market-related conditions are discussed and analyzed using the models developed.
