Last week at OCP Policy Center, we published a policy brief on Decoupling economic growth from CO2 emissions in the world, and A Practitioner’s Guide for Building the Interregional Input-Output System for Morocco.

Research Paper

A Practitioner’s guide for building the interregional input output system for Morocco

This paper reports on the recent developments in the construction of an interregional input-output matrix for Morocco (IIOM-MOR). As part of an ongoing project that aims to specify and calibrate an interregional CGE (ICGE) model for the country, a fully specified interregional input-output database was developed under conditions of limited information. Such database is needed for future calibration of the ICGE model. We conduct an analysis of the intraregional and interregional shares for the average total output multipliers. Furthermore, we also show detailed figures for the output decomposition, taking into account the structure of final demand.

Long Term Development

Decoupling economic growth from CO2 emissions in the world

The progressive warming of Earth suggests an important danger for future populations. As stabilizing the level of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere becomes inadequate, there is now talk of reducing this level while preserving sustainable economic growth rates. This Policy Brief deals with the issue of the economy’s carbon intensity through a decoupling indicator, defined as the ratio between the change in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and Gross Domestic Product (GDP). It also highlights some remarkable trends emerging from the experience of different countries

Découplage entre croissance économique et émissions de dioxyde de carbone dans le monde

Le réchauffement progressif de la terre laisse présager un danger important pour les populations futures. Stabiliser le niveau de gaz à effet de serre (GES) dans l’atmosphère devient alors insuffisant, il est désormais question de réduire ce niveau, tout en préservant des taux de croissance économique soutenables. Ce Policy Brief traite de la question de l’intensité carbone de l’économie , à travers un indicateur de découplage, défini comme le rapport entre la variation des émissions de dioxyde de carbone (CO2) et du Produit Intérieur Brut (PIB)

Call for Papers : Submissions Closing Soon

The requirements of economic and social development in developing countries especially in Africa are considerable. Developing countries face major challenges such as increasing their growth rate. This particular challenge presupposes a significant effort to mobilize internal and external financing simultaneously with the changes in global development financing modalities: the rise of internal financing at the expense of official development assistance (ODA) and external financing. The requirement in terms of increasing growth rates to significantly reduce unemployment and poverty exists in the context of a broader strengthening of the investment program that is linked to a greater mobilization of savings. Macroeconomic literature on the impact of financial liberalization on savings is considerable1 . However, most models considering this question do not clarify the direction of causality between variables as a result of the complexity of the reform process.
