The SEI Epidemic-Macroeconomic Model is a software tool designed to help national and regional authorities generate economic scenarios that incorporate the ramifications of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Assessing the economic repercussions of the pandemic requires understanding how measures undertaken to contain its spread impact both public health and different sectors of the economy. The new tool developed by SEI helps decision-makers to undertake these needed analyses and to consider the economic implications of the Covid-19 pandemic in their sustainability planning. The economic scenarios generated with the tool can be used as inputs to scenario models, such as SEI’s signature planning tools: the Low Emissions Analysis Platform (LEAP) and the Water Evaluation and Planning System (WEAP).
