In 1999 the Executive Body of the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution decided to include integrated assessment into the core activities of the Co-operative programme for Monitoring and Evaluation of the Long-range Transmission of Air Pollutants in Europe (EMEP) and to establish a Centre for Integrated Assessment Modelling (CIAM) building on past modelling work, in particular the RAINS model (ECE/EB.AIR/68, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, 1999).Work at CIAM will analyze scenarios for cost-effective reductions of acidification, eutrophication, tropospheric ozone and related phenomena, especially fine particulate matter pollution. Modelling covers

CIAM serves the UN/ECE Task Force on Integrated Assessment Modelling (TFIAM):
