WP4 - Distributional Impacts of Climate Policies

Based on selected climate policy scenarios (analyzed in WP 3.2) and based on feedback mechanisms of structural change and climate change (studied in WP1 – WP3), we run distributional analyses at different scales. WP 4.1 focuses on international burden sharing of climate change mitigation. WP4.2 and WP4.3 provide the methodological and technical basis for sub-national distributional analyses. Analyses of this kind are carried out in WP4.4 by a coupling of various models. Subsequently, WP 4.5 adds another dimension by investigating selected policy instruments that help to avoid adverse distributional effects.
