The main objective of the COACCH project is to produce an improved downscaled assessment of the risks and costs of climate change in Europe that can be accessed directly for the different needs of end users from the research, business, investment, and the policy making community. This overall objective breaks down into five specific goals:
IIASA will assess the costs of climate change on the agriculture, forestry and fisheries sectors in Europe by further integrating crop, forest and fisheries modelling into the bio-economic land use model GLOBIOM. Medium and long-term economic and environmental impacts on the land use sector will be assessed under various climatic and socio-economic scenarios. Moreover, using an innovative version of the model, GLOBIOM-X, the occurrence and impacts of extreme climatic events and socio-economic tipping points are assessed. Furthermore, the CATSIM model will be used to assess the insurance dimension.
