The aim is to indicate several directions in which integrated assessment can and should develop in order to better enable policy-makers and citizens to grapple with the daunting risks and challenges posed by global climate change.

The sections below provide a brief introduction to these topics. Endogenous Technological Change. We designed scenarios for impact assessment that explicitly address policy choices and uncertainty in climate response. Economic projections and the resulting greenhouse gas emissions for the “no climate policy” scenario and two stabilization scenarios: at W/m2 and W/m2 by are provided.

New Directions in Development Economics In addition to the changing realities of economic development, the issue of global climate change has also forced economists to re-think basic assumptions embedded in the traditional economic framework.

Abstract We review recent work in the integrated assessment modeling of global climate change. This field has grown rapidly since Integrated assessment models seek to combine knowledge from multiple disciplines in formal integrated representations; inform policy-making, structure knowledge, and prioritize key uncertainties; and advance knowledge of broad system linkages and feedbacks Cited by: Abstract We review recent work in the integrated assessment modeling of global climate change.

Currently, most analyses rely on models or projections that assume “smooth behavior ” — i.e., the climate responds slowly and predictably, gradually warming as atmospheric GHG concentrations increase. In reality, the global climate is a complex system that could behave quite erratically.

Global climate change poses a threat to the well-being of humans and other living things through impacts on ecosystem functioning, biodiversity, capital productivity, and human health.

It will discuss new integrated assessment models for climate change with stock-flow consistent (SFC) macroeconomic models. These alternative models have much richer dynamic outcomes and allow the exploration of nonlinear feedback loops that are entirely absent from traditional models, in particular the crucial interaction between private debt, economic activity, and global.

The book offers one of the most extensive analyses of the economic and environmental dynamics of greenhouse-gas emissions and climate change and provides the tools to evaluate alternative approaches to slowing global warming.

The book is actually a detailed description of a single computer model, not a comprehensive treatment of managing the global commons, or even of the economics of climate change.

Despite this, the effect of global warming on human population levels is not currently incorporated into Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) that assess the welfare impacts of climate change.

To the limited extent that integrated assessment models have included climate mortality impacts, they have accounted for them as damage to economic output.
