CRED: A New Model of Climate and Development
Abstract CRED is an integrated assessment model foc
CRED is an integrated assessment model focused on the global distribution of climate damages and climate policy costs. It is designed to estimate both the best pace of investment in mitigation and the best distribution of the cost of that investment to regions of the world.

CRED is a simple model designed for ease of use and to facilitate presenting results in a coherent, comprehensible framework. The model takes into consideration that many developing countries are more exposed to climate impacts, and that poverty and inadequate infrastructure and services are major factors in vulnerability to climate change. CRED models utility maximization in an unequal, climate-constrained world. The goal of the model is to inform global climate negotiations and help break the stalemate between developed and developing countries. There are nine regions of the world in CRED, three high-income and six developing ones.

DIA/Outputs CRED could be viewed as setting priorities
CRED could be viewed as setting priorities among three competing uses: high-income consumption, developing-country consumption, and abatement. All non-BAU scenarios show that the optimal path includes fairly rapid elimination emissions in high-income countries. Reductions in these emissions produce worldwide benefits, which can be bought with resources that were yielding little utility.
