In chapter 13, Brewster et al. model the economic linkages between different groups of natural resource users and analyze the effect of the potential growth strategies. Using data from the PLLA (chapter 6) and an extensive household and enterprise level data set, a Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) model for the Commune of Madiama was developed. Application of this model demonstrated that the largest impacts from exogenous changes in demand are associated with rice and livestock sectors. Furthermore, impacts are shared differentially among socioeconomic groups with agropastoralists benefiting most and the transhumant group benefiting least.
