Coming Soon! The TOA-MD Book and TOA-MD Version 7!



Version 7 adds the calculation of counterfactuals and treatment effects, and poverty gaps, re-organized output sheets and a handy dashboard for data visualization. In addition, Version 7 utilizes a simplified representation of correlations for calculation of mean and threshold outcomes, and provides options for aggregation of outcome variables. Input files in Version 5 and 6 formats will work in Version 7.



A new report shows how Tradeoff Analysis can support the objectives of the new One CGIAR

John Antle and Roberto Valdivia prepared this new report for the CGIAR Independent Science for Development Council that provides a framework for the design and evaluation of projects to meet the objectives of the newly formed One CGIAR using foresight and tradeoff analysis. Applications using TOA-MD are featured. A related open-access paper, Tradeoff Analysis of Agri-Food Systems for Sustainable Research and Development was published in the first issue of the new journal Q Open.
