The goal of the project is to develop an analytical tool that allows for an integrated and consistent assessment of the environmental and climate effects of economic policies, as well as the socioeconomic effects of environmental, energy and climate policies. An important premise for this, and a goal in itself, is that the baseline simulation of the model should provide a comprehensive assessment of how future economic development is expected to affect the environment and climate. Further, the baseline simulation should assess whether this development is compatible with the political goals within these areas.
The project started as a research project and was since supplemented with funds from the Ministry of Finance. A description of the project and its purpose, which is still relevant, can be found in the application for the research project. The text on this page should be read as a supplement to this description.
