Second RWAMOD training

18-20 October 2023, Kigali, Rwanda

Second RWAMOD training

As part of the SOUTHMOD project, the national team at the Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA), in collaboration with UNU-WIDER and the Southern African Social Policy Research Insights (SASPRI), are organizing the second in-person training workshop on RWAMOD, a tax-benefit microsimulation model for Rwanda.

The 2,5-day training workshop is targeted for technical staff of the Rwandan government institutions, local research institutions, and universities.

The training includes sessions on the purpose and goals of tax-benefit microsimulation modelling, standard functionalities of the RWAMOD model and EUROMOD software, and analysis of model results. In addition, the training enables the participants to build, implement and evaluate a range of tax-benefit policy reforms using the model.


UNU-WIDER and SASPRI have embarked on a collaboration called SOUTHMOD, to promote tax-benefit microsimulation modelling in developing countries using the EUROMOD tax-benefit microsimulation software.

Tax-benefit microsimulation models provide knowledge for better policy-making and inclusive development. With the models the effects of different policy scenarios on poverty, inequality, and government revenues can be analyzed and compared.

RWAMOD is a stand-alone model which has been built in collaboration with UNU-WIDER, RRA, and SASPRI.

SOUTHMOD project is part of UNU-WIDER's research and capacity building programme on domestic revenue mobilization (DRM), funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development Co-operation (Norad).
