This is the technical appendix to chapter 2 of the report Building a low-carbon economy – the UK’s contribution to tackling climate change.
Written by the Committee on Climate Change, it presents the integrated assessment model (IAM) results referenced in chapter 2 of the main report.
IAMs model the relationship between:

- the effects of GHGs on the climate
- the physical, environmental, economic and social impacts caused by climate change
