Within the EC4MACS project of the EU LIFE program, IIASA coordinated a consortium of leading scientific institutions that developed a toolbox of modelling tools to at explore the synergies and interactions between climate change, air quality and other policy objectives.
GAINS and EC4MACS analyses have been used by Commission staff to develop quantitative policy proposals, to quantify their environmental and economic effects for the impact assessment of the European Commission, and to produce the background material that elaborates rationales for and expected impacts of the proposed policies. Subsequently, the tools have been used to inform policy negotiations of the European Institutions, i.e., the European Parliament, the European Council, and the European Commission.
