Description of model
The FAIR model is an interactive, decision-support tool to analyse the environmental implications and economic costs of climate mitigation regimes. The model links long-term climate targets and global reduction objectives with regional emissions allowances and abatement costs, so is particularly useful for looking at some of the more detailed Kyoto mechanisms.
Particular relevance FAIR is relevant in assessing the socio-economic impact of climate change mitigation policies. In particular, the model is useful in assessing the costs of such policies. Coverage 26 world regions (FAIR region model), 27 EU Member States (FAIR EU model) and 224 UN countries (FAIR world model) Model applications
Exploring comparable post-2012 reduction efforts for Annex I countries - Using FAIR, this study analyses the possible approaches to greenhouse gas abatement by industrialised (Annex I) countries, to calculate their comparability (http://www.pbl.nl/en/publications/2009/Exploring-comparable-post-2012-reduction-efforts-for-Annex-I-countries.html).
A multi-gas abatement analysis of the Kyoto Protocol - FAIR is used to analyse the economic costs of the Kyoto Protocol, based on a multi-gas approach, accounting for all six Kyoto gases (http://www.pbl.nl/en/publications/2005/A_multi-gas_abatement_analysis_of_the_Kyoto_Protocol.html).
