Global simulation models are increasingly used to assess future scenarios and the impact of policiesrelated to food security, land use and climate change. A crucial element in these studies areassumptions on productivity change and technical progress, the key drivers of long-run economicgrowth and structural change. However, despite their importance, these assumptions are oftensimplistic or rather ad hoc. This paper addresses this issue by presenting sector and country specificprojections for labour productivity till the year 2050 for seven economic regions in the world.
