"Black and Blue Gold: effects on regional agriculture in Kenya"
by Ferrari, Emanuele, Ayca Donmez, Hasan Dudu, Scott McDonald and Rehab Osman


Abstract
The Turkana region of Kenya is one of the poorest areas of the country. In September 2013 the identification of two huge aquifers in the Turkana region had been announced. This study, through a single-country comparative static CGE model (STAGE), analyses the economic effects of the new discoveries on Kenya. Preliminary results indicate that increases in the availabilities of potable and irrigation water individually have relatively muted effects on agricultural production.
