Third training on MOZMOD

A tax-benefit microsimulation model for Mozambique

This is the third training event on the MOZMOD model. In this training course, organized by UNU-WIDER, the Southern African Social Policy Research Institute (SASPRI), Ministry of Economics and Finance, Mozambique, and ILO Mozambique, members of the Government of Mozambique were walked through the model introducing the recent updates made.

MOZMOD has been updated and launched at an event to promote its use within the Government for evidence-based policymaking as well as to provide an overview of the model.

The training was a hands-on workshop where, besides introducing participants how to use the model, several exercises and examples were used. Participants learned how to navigate and interpret the MOZMOD user interface; how to run MOZMOD; how to build and implement a basic policy reform; and how to interpret the results using Statistics Presenter. The group also participated in the implementation of a tax and benefit system in 2019, using its expertise on the various policies included in the model.
