Higher Education Course on IGE Modelling

This package of teaching materials for a semester-long course on “Inclusive Green Economy Modelling” is freely available to higher education institutions around the world. The goal is to support interested universities in establishing recurrent courses on modelling. Partner institutions can also choose to integrate components of the course into their existing course portfolio or to use components of the course for a series of seminars. The materials were developed through PAGE and pilot-tested in spring 2020 at the Universidad de Pacifico, Peru. They are available in English and will be translated to Spanish and French by the end of 2020.

The target audience for the course is Master’s students. It could potentially also be offered to undergraduate students in their final year. The course familiarizes students with various methodologies and models, and provides an opportunity for students to start using modelling tools, such as input-output, general and partial equilibrium, systems engineering, system dynamics and spatially explicit models, in an area of interest to them. The type of skills acquired through this course are usually needed in institutions that deal with medium to long-term planning, across sectors. 

The package includes the following materials:

  • Course syllabus
  • Facilitator guide
  • Presentations for each of the three course modules
  • Handouts for exercises
