Integrated assessment modelling

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:

  • greenhouse gas emissions of GHGs
  • the effects of GHGs on the climate
  • the physical, environmental, economic and social impacts caused by climate change
