Simulation Models of 5 African Economies: Wider


For the last two years. we've been involved in a wide ranging project organised by the United Nations to help build microsimulation capacity in Africa. Models were built by teams from the countries themselves; Virtual Worlds role in this was to supply training and Web- enable the finished models. Work starts on a new tranche of African models in February 2008.
