Yield Target and Poverty Reduction Model for South Asia

Yield Target and Poverty Reduction Model for South Asia

Tool Type: Model
Publication Date: January, 2011

Comparative static model used to estimate long-term aggregate potential yield gains and aggregate potential poverty reduction effects from narrowing yield gaps for selected commodities in selected regions. The model allows for differentiated yield gap closure and technology adoption scenarios in focus and non-focus countries and for focus and non-focus crops. The model also accounts for varying "poverty-productivity" elasticities across commodities (a synthetic measure linking productivity gains and poverty reduction).
