Integrated Assessment Models (IAM) are models of the climate and the economy used to investigate the consequences of climate policies on the future evolution of climate and their impacts. Such models often consider risk in a crude way, by focusing on most likely or expected outcomes (through Monte-Carlo simulations). They rarely deal with the questions of inter- and intragenerational. The worskop aims at discussing how richer evaluations of risk (through risk and ambiguity aversion) and of equity can be implemented in IAMs.
This event is part of the EquiRisk research project funded by the ANR (ANR-12-INEG-006-01). It is organized in collaboration with the Chair “Welfare Economics” at Collège d’Etudes Mondiales.
