Download Climate Policy Assessment: Asia-Pacific Integrated Modeling by Mikiko Kainuma, Yuzuru Matsuoka, Tsuneyuki Morita PDF

By Mikiko Kainuma, Yuzuru Matsuoka, Tsuneyuki Morita

The Asia–Pacific built-in version (AIM) brings jointly greater than 20 computing device simulation versions for improvement and research of coverage in such varied fields as weather swap mitigation, pollution abatement, and environment protection. this primary booklet in a sequence at the improvement of goal specializes in weather swap matters and the evaluate of coverage suggestions to stabilize the worldwide weather. It provides an outline of the versions constructed up to now, their constitution, and the consequences and analyses awarded to policymakers and researchers on the degrees of person Asian nations, the Asia–Pacific sector, and the area at huge. The contents fluctuate in scope from neighborhood to worldwide concerns, with discussions of the consequences of weather guidelines, fee analyses of weather guidelines with their results on exchange, and worldwide state of affairs analyses. additionally integrated are influence analyses and the consequences of selling environmental applied sciences.

Example text

AIM also contributed to other international activities: AIM was selected as reference model in the Special Report on Emission Scenarios (SRES) and in Third Assessment Report (TAR) both of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and also in the Global Environment Outlook (GEO) of United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP). AIM simulation results were used by many other international organizations including OECD, ESCAP, ADB, UNU, and WWF. Recently, the AIM modeling team started to prepare new set of models for Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) and Asia-Pacific Environmental Innovation Strategy Project (APEIS).

The same applies to NOx emissions. 5 Emissions Scenarios with Climate Policies Scenarios in the previous section (SRES scenarios) do not include any explicit mitigation or stabilization policies or measures. As such, they include scenarios ranging from rapidly increasing to decreasing emissions over the next one hundred years. New scenarios based on the wide range of SRES scenarios were quantified as a set of mitigation (policy intervention) scenarios for stabilizing atmospheric GHG concentrations.

While policies are also oriented towards environmental protection and social equity, they are focused on the local and regional levels. 3 Model Description In order to quantify GHG emissions from various sources, a new linkage module of the integrated assessment model was developed and comprehensive storylines of development were established. Future projections were made using the integrated assessment model for energy use, energy production, industrial processes, land-use changes, agricultural production, livestock, etc.
