A primary objective of the project is to estimate socio-economic impacts arising from global changes by using economic models. The consortium is endowed with a large set of state-of-the-art, internationally renown, modeling tools, that will be further expanded and enriched to focus on key areas of research such as agriculture, forestry, land use, energy, EU competitiveness, labor, international trade. Theoretical innovations concerning discounting, risk and ambiguity will be developed and tested numerically with models.

Today, the world is transforming itself, socially, economically and
environmentally. We can think of these transformations together as the process
of ‘global change’: doing so emphasises the increasing interactions between
them. But what are the impacts of these interconnected global changes, in the
EU and beyond, and what are the best policy responses to manage them?

The objectives of Global-IQ are three-fold:

  • to significantly advance the
    estimation of the socio-economic impacts of global challenges, at the global,
    European and national scales
  • to identify optimal adaptation strategies;
  • to evaluate the total costs of managing global changes and the optimal mix of
    adaptation and mitigation.
  • The consortium lead by Toulouse School of Economics – where FEEM is deputy coordinator – is endowed with a large set of state-of-the-art, internationally renown, economic modeling tools, that will be further expanded and enriched to estimate socio-economic impacts arising from global changes. The research will focus on key areas such as: agriculture, forestry, land use, energy, EU competitiveness, labor, and international trade. Furthermore theoretical innovations concerning discounting, risk and ambiguity will be developed and tested numerically with models.
