/Learn about Integrated Assessment Modeling

Here, you can find material from the summer schools, webinars and other teaching material developed over the course of the project. You can also find detailed information on the models used.

Model documentation

During the course of the project, we will document all models used in this project in the existing model documentation wiki maintained by PBL and hosted by the Integrated Assessment Modeling Consortium:

The aim is to better understand key differences between modelling approaches and enhance comparability and interpretability of model results. The documentation is composed of two target-group specific components: (i) the reference cards describe main features across models and are primarily targeted to decision makers (ii) the comprehensive model documentation describes the model structure, including mathematical formulae as well as reference to relevant input datasets, and is primarily targeted towards energy-land-climate modellers, technical staff in government and firms, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers.
