Abstract

This study evaluates the impact of the ECOWAS-CET and the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) on youth employment and on welfare in Senegal. The analysis is conducted using the PEP-1-1 model, which is a static computable general equilibrium model. The simulation results indicate that applying ECOWAS-CET instead of WAEMU-CET generates an increase in youth and female employment, whatever their qualification level, as well as a general increase in welfare for households in Senegal. However, the implementation of EPA downgrades this situation and leads to a reverse effect on employment of all workers, mainly youth and female employment, as well as on welfare.
