"An integrated framework to analyse the impacts of the African Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) – from continent to households analysis"
by Ferrari, Emanuele, Antti Simola, Victor Nechifor, Ole Boysen and Mohammed Basheer

The African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), which came into effect in January 2021, holds a promise of boosting the economies of African countries. The AfCFTA is the world’s largest free trade area bringing together the 55 countries of the African Union (AU) and eight Regional Economic Communities (RECs). The AfCFTA aims to eliminate trade barriers and boost intra-Africa trade, to advance trade in value-added production across all sectors of the continent and to establish regional value chains in Africa, enabling investment and job creation. The agreement could also help to alleviate the food security and poverty issues in various parts of the continent.
The paper presents a framework, which exploit the strength of a global CGE model, an artificial intelligence algorithm, a single-country CGE model, and microsimulation model to provide impacts of ex-ante scenarios at global and continental, country, and household level. Kenya acts as a case study.
