The Pardee Center’s Director-Designate Jonathan Moyer and Research Associate David Bohl recently returned from a week of training USAID personnel and partner organizations in Jakarta, Indonesia. From May 23-27, 2016, Moyer and Bohl trained policy practitioners in the IFs forecasting model and how it can support their work.
New users of the International Futures (IFs) system are often overwhelmed by its massive and comprehensive set of data series, variables, and parameters. Those unfamiliar with forecasting, modeling, or data analysis may also have a hard time grasping IFs unique vocabulary and features.
Members of the Frederick S. Pardee Center traveled to South Africa the first week of December for a week-long training workshop with members of the Western Cape Provincial Government.
