    The Rural/Urban-North/South Model (RUNS) is a global applied general equilibrium model, with a focus on agriculture. RUNS was initially developed in the early 1980's and has been used throughout the 1980's to provide analyses of world agricultural trends and agricultural policies. Amongst other things, RUNS was used to provide background analyses for several World Bank World Development Reports. RUNS is now integrated into the Development Centre's 1990-1992 programme on Developing Country Agriculture and International Economic Trends, under the direction of Ian Goldin. This paper provides an updated full technical specification of the RUNS model. It replaces and revises Technical Paper 33 which documented the model structure as of December 1990. Parts I and II of the paper provide an introduction and a general description of the model and is intended for a broad audience. Part III provides a detailed description of each block of the RUNS model, including a full set of model ... Le modèle Rural/Urbain-Nord/Sud (RUNS) est un modèle global d'équilibre général appliqué, axé sur l'agriculture. RUNS fut initialement conçu au début des années 80 et a été employé durant cette décennie pour analyser les tendances des marchés agricoles mondiaux et les politiques agricoles. Entre autres, les analyses de RUNS furent utilisées dans plusieurs World Development Reports, publiés par la Banque mondiale.

Ce texte est une révision de la description technique complète du modèle RUNS. Il remplace le Document Technique 33 lequel exposait la structure du modèle jusqu'en Décembre 1990. Les parties I et II du document présentent une introduction et un aperçu général du modèle et sont destinées à un large public. La partie III donne une description détaillée ...
