Amit focuses on models that are used to evaluate the economic consequences of climate change in this video. The models he'll talk about are known as Integrated Assessment Models, or IAMs, and the reason for choosing these over others is that IAMs are the most widely used by social scientists who specialise in climate-related problems.
Key learning objectives:
What are Integrated Assessment Models?
What are the key components of an IAM?
How can the climate module be used to assess the economic impact of climate change?
