The ERD group used the stochastic version of GLOBIOM to analyze interdependencies and trade-offs between factors such as food, energy, water, environmental security, aspects which can be particularly influenced by climate change and weather variability. The GLOBIOM model was also used by the group to analyze the consequences of climate change for the agricultural sector, with a focus on the consequences for food security in developing countries.
The ERD group have also supported viable REDD policies by supporting policymakers in Brazil and the Congo Basin to identify land-use policies that are economically, socially, and environmentally optimal.
Stochastic GLOBIOM has been used to analyze interdependencies and trade-offs between structural and financial measures for hedging systemic risks and food, energy, water, environmental security in land use systems, which can be induced by climate change and weather variability. More
