Project meeting of GWS and Chilean partners for training and handover of the COFORCE model
As part of the project "Development of Sustainable Mining Strategies in Chile with a Regionalized National Model", GWS developed the macro-econometric IO model COFORCE for Chile.
The aim is to analyse the dependence of the Chilean economy on copper. Various scenarios have already been calculated for this purpose.
The COFORCE model will be handed over to the Chilean partners so that they can carry out scenario analyses independently. In a training course, the model relationships will be explained and the possibilities of calculating scenarios with the model will be discussed. To make the model easier to use, it is equipped with the graphical user interface IMAGINE which supports the user in scenario design, calculation and evaluation.
Further information on the project can be found at http://www.coforce.cl/.
