This brief focuses on the economy-wide impact of the HPAI outbreak in Nigeria. The primary goal is to assess the economy-wide potential impact of an avian flu outbreak in Nigeria, which can provide helpful information for designing a pro-poor HPAI risk-reduction strategy. Towards this, a dynamic computable general equilibrium (CGE) model and a social accounting matrix (SAM) were used to assess the economy-wide impact of HPAI outbreaks in Nigeria.
