Models on mitigation and adaptation policies



The first set of results are models on the effects of greenhouse gases mitigation and adaptation policies.

A primary example of a contribution is the research work on the economics of air quality in Europe. Another one is on the impact of carbon pricing, brown coal availability, and the cost of gas.

Besides, other results improved the key parameters of economic models. In particular, they delivered new econometric estimations on modelling the biofuel market, which can play a role in the mitigation effort of climate change.

Finally, on the effects of climate change, the research analysed relevant policy mitigation measures that address the depletion of water reservoirs and the risks of flooding of infrastructures.
