I assisted the “Direction de la Conjoncture et de la Prévision Economique” to implement a two-year training and capacity building program designed to strengthen macro policy analysis and management capacity within the ministry of economy and finance.

I led a team of local experts to assist the government to strengthen macroeconomic policy management capacities. We developed with the team (i) a macroeconomic model for basic forecasting and macro projections (ECOBEN), and a computable general equilibrium model (BENMCEG) for adjustment policy simulations. A team of local experts has been trained throughout the project to continue improving and exploiting the instruments.
1989-1991 World Bank, Washington DC: Macroeconomist/Consultant for macro-modeling of the Social Dimension of Adjustment (SDA), World Bank, Washington, DC. I was in charge of developing a modeling strategy for incorporating social dimensions in macroeconomic policy analysis and planning. In that capacity, I designed an empirical framework for policy planning integrating social dimensions (the "Macro-Meso-Micro"), and an extended version of the World Bank RMSM model in order to produce a number of social indicators of development. Versions of the extended RMSM (RMSM-S) have been implemented respectively for TOGO (RMSMS.TOG) and TANZANIA (RMSMS.TAN).
1985-1986 USAID, Egypt: Macroeconomist/Consultant for USAID-supported macro-modeling project for Egypt. I developed a microcomputer based computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of the Egyptian economy, for use in the policy dialogue between USAID CAIRO and the Egyptian Government.
