Models and Tools


For our analyses, we complement global modelling tools such as integrated assessment modelling with innovative applications of agent-based modelling. Model results are grounded in the reality of country policy choices.

Integrated economic assessment

Food Systems Modelling is based on different scenarios and informed by detailed narratives of food system change

Agent-based modelling to capture behavioural and cognitive aspects of individuals’ responses to policy

Analysis of the farmers behaviour to food systems shocks or interventions such as policy reforms.


The TELLUS Model

Systematic literature reviews

Harnessing the power of machine learning to identify robust evidence and knowledge gaps.


Granular application of analysis at the national and sub-national level, deploying a variety of methodological approaches.
