Climate and Development Model

SEI US is building a new integrated assessment model for climate and development choices.

The model rests on a fundamental refraiming of the joint climate/development problem. It incorporates the best features of existing climate models, combined with recent advances in climate science and the economics of uncertainty, and brings global equity into the picture, eliminating the technical obstacle that prevents many climate models from "seeing" the development problem.
