Solution method Optimization

Demographic development affects strongly the implications for the anticipated mitigation and adaptation challenges. Population and labor forces are exogenous parameters in C3IAM and are based on the Shared Socio-economic Pathways (SSPs) at the country level SSP database made available by IIASA. The exogenous labor input affects the dynamics of other macroeconomic production factors (capital, energy) since the model seeks an optimal allocation of production factors.
