NAVIGATE consortium members have been carefully selected to bring together a diverse collection of internationally-recognised state-of-the-art tools to ensure successful implementation of the project. They combine
- sophisticated integrated assessment modelling tools,
- detailed state-of-the-art sector models,
- other tools concerned with input-output modelling, socio-technical transition modelling, stochastic general equilibrium modelling, and country-level downscaling,
- extensive datasets such as the ISIMIP dataset of climate and biophysical impact projections for use as background in the project.
The range of IAMs and the breadth of other tools in NAVIGATE ensures that a broad spectrum of elements can be assessed in the field of transformative change and distributional impacts, but also allows for model comparisons in key areas of the project to evaluate uncertainty and robustness of results.
