Welcome to the GTAP Tutorial which provides online courses on economy-wide policy analysis using GTAP computable general equilibrium (CGE) models and RunGTAP software.  This website provides a course curriculum to support teachers, classes, and individuals who want to pursue an introductory course in applied general economic modeling using a  GTAP CGE model. 
GTAP is certainly the far most widespread international database for CGE modeling. The database was so far only distributed with a default CGE model template in GEMPACK, called the standard GTAP model, as well as with many useful GEMPACK based utilities. GEMPACK as a special package for CGEs has certain distinct advantages compared to less specialized languages.
The course relies mostly on freely available resources and includes audio lectures, self-assessments, toy models, databases, practice modeling exercises with step-by-step instructions and links to useful resources.
