Models for analysing climate change and air pollution policies

This portal provides information on models, along with examples of relevant policy applications which are used to assess policies on climate change and air pollution. These models incorporate the latest scientific findings and validate data from all Member States and economic sectors.

Models and tools are used to simulate the future evolution of emission-generating activities as a function of economic development, to estimate the resulting emissions, and to assess the physical and economic impacts and benefits of emission control measures on a wide range of environmental and health endpoints.

The models can be run either independently or as useful combinations as part of more comprehensive assessments. These are grouped in three categories: climate and air impacts, activity and emissions and socio-economic assessments.
