Description of model

ICLIPS seeks to provide Integrated Assessment of Climate Protection Strategies to support the decision-making community.  The model assesses the social and economic consequences of climate-change policies.  It consists of three modules looking at climate effects, the impacts of these effects and the socio-economic outcomes.  The basis for the model is the two-way linkages between society and the climate, making it an appropriate tool for assessing the economic, social and environmental impacts of response measures.

Particular relevance

ICLIPS is particularly useful in investigating methods of economic diversification in various world regions, as well as the assessment of the socio-economic impacts of climate change mitigation policies.
