Abstract
Poverty is a key aspect of assessing the impact on developing countries. Micro-simulation models, linked to the national level CGE models, will be adopted for assessing the poverty impacts. Micro-simulation models rely upon household expenditure surveys, preferably in combination with census data to assure national coverage of the analysis. The World Bank provides a set of household level surveys suitable for micro-simulation analysis. As in the case of the analyses for Europe assessing the impact on agricultural sustainability is a key point in the developing country analysis. This will be addressed through a tropical version of the FSSIM model which will yield a similar set of sustainability indictors as derived from the European FSSIM models.
