Workshop on Modelling the Economic Impact of Disasters:
Static and Dynamic Analysis
January 20, 2017 (8:30am-4:00pm) Diamond Hotel, Manila, Philippines
The Philippines has experienced climate change impacts through an increased incidence of natural disasters over time. Their impacts on the economy and to society have intensified as well. Government efforts for prevention and post-disaster response are necessary in establishing resilience against such disruptions. This workshop will introduce a computational tool for assessing the economic impact of natural disasters to provide policymakers, government agencies, local government units and other stakeholders insights on their proposed policies to the macroeconomy.
This workshop will provide an introduction to inoperability input-output modelling and dynamic inoperability input-output modelling through the use of a web-based freeware, case study discussions among participants and future prospects in disaster risk analysis through other computation tools such as computable general equilibrium modelling.
The workshop is open to local government units, government agencies, graduate students and faculty members of higher education institutions. Pre-registration is required. Hands-on demonstrations will be conducted. Participants are requested to bring their own laptops. Applicants should submit their CV in pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 18, 2017.
