Environmental Impact and Sustainability Applied General Equilibrium Model (ENVISAGE)
Abstract ENVISAGE is a computable general equilibri
ENVISAGE is a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model that assesses interactions between economies and the global environment as affected by anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Designed to analyze a variety of issues related to the economics of climate change, including baseline of CO2 and greenhouse gases, impact of climate change on economy, adaptation to climate change, and distributional consequences of climate change.

DIA/Approach ENVISAGE is a recursive dynamic multi-sect
ENVISAGE is a recursive dynamic multi-sector, multi-region CGE model. Its emissions and climate module links economic activities directly to changes in global mean temperature. The model also links changes in temperature to impacts on economic variables such as agricultural yields or damages created by sea level rise. Issues analyzed include the economics of climate change, impact of climate change on economy, adaptation to climate change, and distributional consequences of climate change.
