This review illustrates that capacity within Nigeria does exist for conducting macroeconomic modelling, but there has been limited modelling of the agriculture sector. Furthermore, existing models have not yet considered issues related to the environment and gender. Therefore, there is a need to develop an appropriate model that addresses these issues with respect to the agriculture sector. However, running the macroeconomic scenarios is not sufficient. The data collected for the analysis needs to be accessible for future use and the knowledge generated shared with stakeholders.
