    Abstract The model is an agro-climatic zone (ACZ) unit based model. The model included two climate-change scenarios (Representative Concentration Pathways-RCPs 4.5 and 8.5), and four socio-economic scenarios (Share Socio-economic Pathways-SSPs). Data used were from several sources, and these included desk review and collection of socio-economic data. The model outputs per ACZ were generated by running the ACZ.gms module of the land allocation or ECOLAND model using COINIPOPT solver. Once ACZ land allocation was generated, the spatial-temporal land allocation per Basin and per country were then computed using basin and country land allocation per cropping and livestock system. The model provides a useful output such as the spatial-temporal distribution of agricultural land availability, cropping and livestock land allocation and farming output per agro-climatic zone, per basin and per country. It also provides intertemporal agricultural production per agricultural unit, per basin and per ECOWAS country up to year 2100.
