This CFSP Concept Note addresses the need for advanced computation in the field of development economics. While computational modeling is a critical part of research in the natural sciences and engineering field, it is even better-suited for use in development economics, a field which studies the highly complex structures of countries in transition. Computational models provide researchers with a precise and cost-effective tool to observe and interpret patterns in observed data and to understand these within the context of economic theory.
