Climate Rapid Overview and Decision Support (C-ROADS) Simulator
C-ROADS translates climate mitigation scenarios and pledge levels into emissions, concentrations, temperature, and per-capita emissions outcomes at the global level. The model quickly runs real-time policy analysis on a computer. C-ROADS allows users to test “what if scenarios” and analyze up to 15 different nations or regions simultaneously.
When to Use This Tool
This tool is most useful for development impacts assessments focused on:
Learn more about the topics for assessing the impacts of low-emission development strategies (LEDS).
Emissions, concentrations, temperature, and per-capita emissions outcomes over the 2000-2100 period.
How to Use This Tool
Some video instruction and manual support is provided
Level of Expertise
GHG emission profiles for up to 15 countries or region.
"C-ROADS is decision-maker-oriented simulation that helps users understand the long term climate impacts of various futures for fossil fuel emissions, other emissions, sequestration, and various uncertainties.In negotiations and strategy conversations, C-ROADS has helped both technical and non-technical people quickly understand the long term implications of climate agreements for CO2 concentration, temperature, sea level rise, emissions and GDP.
