SOUTHMOD – simulating tax and benefit policies for development

Under the SOUTHMOD – simulating tax and benefit policies for development project UNU-WIDER is organizing a workshop for project contributors. The workshop is an opportunity for representatives of the country teams from Ecuador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Vietnam and Zambia, and the researchers from the senior partners including the University of Essex, KU Leuven and Southern African Social Policy Research Insights (SASPRI), to discuss ongoing work on the tax-benefit microsimulation country models. The aim of the workshop is to provide a possibility for country teams to share lessons learnt in the process of building and developing the country models.
