TOA-MD5.0: A Novel Approach to Multi-Dimensional Impact Assessment
- The TOA Project develops modeling tools that can be used by research teams to improve the understanding of agricultural system sustainability and inform policy decisions.
- The TOA Project also provides training to empower researchers and institutions to use these modeling tools.
- For more information on the Tradeoffs approach, check out these key publications and the TOA project history.

- The 3rd Annual Global TOA-MD Workshop held June 9-13 2014 at the ILRI Campus in Addis Ababa was a great success! The course, focusing on Crop-Livestock Modeling, was attended by 20 CGIAR Scientists. This course was organized in collaboration with Mario Herrero (CSIRO) to utilize the livestock model Ruminant with TOA-MD.
- The 2nd Annual Global TOA-MD Workshop was held June 17-21 2013 at OSU in Corvallis.
- John Antle and Roberto Valdivia led and organized the AgMIP TOA-MD Economic Modeling Workshop in Dubai, UAE, April 29 -May 3, 2013. See more information at www.agmip.org

- John Antle and Roberto Valdivia attended the AgMIP Sub-Saharan Africa Regional Workshop in Accra, Ghana, September 10-14, 2012, and the AgMIP South Asia Regional Workshop in Colombo, Sri Lanka, November 12-16, 2012. See information about these workshops at www.agmip.org
- John Antle, Roberto Valdivia and Jianhong Mu attended the first AgMIP North America meeting in Ames, IA, September 5-7, 2012. A group of economists met at this meeting to discuss possible model inter-comparison and impact assessment activities for the North American region. A summary of the Economics Breakout Sessions is available. Economists from the region are invited to express interest in participation in AgMIP North America.
- The 1st Annual Global TOA-MD Workshop was held June 19-23 at OSU in Corvallis.
- John Antle received the Agricultural & Applied Economics Association’s prestigious Quality of Research Discovery Award for the paper “Parsimonious Multi-Dimensional Impact Assessment” published in the 2011 AJAE. The award was presented to John at the AAEA Awards & Fellows Recognition Ceremony at the 2012 AAEA Annual Meeting to be held in Seattle from August 12–14, 2012.
