Description of model

The AIM (Asia Pacific Integrated Model)  is an integrated assessment model made up of  three modules: 1) the greenhouse gas emission model (AIM/emission); 2)  the global climate change model (AIM/climate); and 3) the climate change impact model (AIM/impact). The third of these makes the model relevant to assessing the response measures.  However, the model also contains a very detailed technology selection module to evaluate the effect of introducing advanced technologies in the Asia-Pacific region.

Particular relevance The AIM model is particularly useful when analysing the development and diffusion of new 'greener' technologies in the Asia-Pacific region.
