Personal profile

Personal information

Wim van Veen MSc (SBE, Development Economics) is economist at the Amsterdam Centre for World Food Studies of the VU University, Amsterdam. He obtained an M.Sc. in Econometrics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam in 1979 and joined the VU in 1980. He has vast experience in developing tools for national economic planning via construction of Social Accounting Matrices and Applied General Equilibrium models, gained in particular in projects for Bangladesh (1981-1985), Thailand (1983-1984), Indonesia (1985-1989), Nigeria (1992-1997) and China (2002-2005 and 2007-2010). Policy issues analyzed with these models cover a variety of topics such as structural adjustment and food policy (Indonesia), sectoral development planning and income distribution (Nigeria) and agricultural trade, farm incomes, environmental pressure and regional land use patterns (China). Outcomes were presented at various workshops and policy seminars in the region. Recent modelling projects in which Van Veen participated concern policy coherence for Ghana (2013-2014) and water use in the Jordan River Basin (2014-2016). The latter project has resulted in a regional hydro-economic model of the basin that should support decision makers of the riparian countries in the design of concerted water management policies and in evaluating the impact of these policies on the welfare of the population.
