A Practitioner’s Guide for Building the Interregional Input-Output System for Morocco, 2013
This podcast is performed by Eduardo Amaral Haddad. This podcast reports on the recent developments in the construction of an interregional input-output matrix for Morocco (IIOM-MOR). As part of an ongoing project that aims to specify and calibrate an interregional CGE (ICGE) model for the country, a fully specified interregional input-output database was developed under conditions of limited information. Such database is needed for future calibration of the ICGE model. We conduct an analysis of the intraregional and interregional shares for the average total output multipliers. Furthermore, we also show detailed figures for the output decomposition, taking into account the structure of final demand.
Climate Change and WEF Nexus in MENA
This podcast is performed by Dr. Rabi Mohtar. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has projected that temperatures in the Arab region will rise between 1 to 1.5 degrees by 2030 and up to 4 degrees by 2100 over parts of the Arab world (IPCC, 2007). Most of the dramatic impact is expected to affect the sub tropics where most of the ESCWA region is located. If adaptation and mitigation policies stay unchanged, it is projected that twenty coastal cities around the world will see devastating impacts from a significant increase in sea level waters; four of them are in north Africa and ME region: Algiers, Beirut, Alexandria and Benghazi. These cities will see significant impacts that have the potential to disrupt coastal agriculture, lifeline, power, telecommunications and transportation sectors (ESCWA 2016; Hallegatte et al., 2013).
Renewable Energy And Water And Food Security
This podcast is performed by Dr. Rabi Mohtar. Renewable energy technologies are projected to have substantial growth in the coming decades, especially given the environmental, social and economic drivers observed globally. The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region encloses abundant alternative energy sources such as solar, wind and hydropower. The concern is more whether the Arab region will be able to respond to and manage the growth opportunities in this emerging sector.
