UNCTAD Global Policy Model (GPM)

The extended GPM includes up to 40 developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, enabling the analysis of the macroeconomic and financial conditions of selected developing countries in the time of COVID-19.

Understanding global influences on domestic policy

Global macroeconomic developments affect developing countries in the options for effective domestic policy design. The UNCTAD GPM provides a coherent and up-to-date global macroeconomic model for an evolving analysis of the world economic situation in light of the COVID-19 crisis, and, in particular, of its impact on developing countries. The global crisis triggered by the COVID-19 shock is placed in the historical context of weak and fragile recoveries since the global financial crisis and as a consequence of climate change challenges. The GPM is expanded to include the macroeconomic and financial conditions of 40 developing countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
