The MyGTAP initiative was founded in 2013 to extend the standard GTAP model to include improved representation of government and household incomes and expenditures. MyGTAP was initially funded by a grant from the Bank of the Netherlands Partnership Program (BNPP) and World Bank to enhance modeling the vulnerabilities of African countries to external shocks. Continuing interest in the model extensions motivated the MyGTAP website which is supported by the original authors of the MyGTAP model and data tools, Terrie Walmsley and Pete Minor. The maintenance of an independent web site allows for greater breadth and focus on the model’s development.
