TASTE: Tariff Analytical and Simulation Tool for Economists

TASTE at IFPRI

TASTE has been designed to provide researchers all around the world a powerful and free tool to perform tariff scenario analysis in a easy way without relying on complex and/or expensive softwares. As a public good, TASTE is a perfect illustration of IFPRI strategy to share knowledge and resources with partners, in particular in developing countries and reduce the asymmetry of information that exists in trade negotiations. TASTE has became an important resource for the training sessions in trade policy assessment developed by the MTID team inside the framework of the International Policy Analysis Network (IPAN) funded by the Hewlett Foundation.
