Documents & Publications

The study focuses on the economy of the United Republic of Tanzania. We model the spatial and temporal dynamics of production, trade, and consumption, and study how the resulting supply-chain flows depend on the transportation network.

These supply-chain flows include the trades of intermediary inputs between Tanzanian firms, business-to-consumers flows, imports, exports, and transit flows. The latter are products transported across The United Republic of Tanzania but produced and consumed elsewhere.

The resulting model, called Disruption-in-Supply-Chains-and-Transportation model, or DisruptSTC model, is used to evaluate the indirect impacts of transportation disruptions.
