Population - PROMETHEUS

From IAMC-Documentation
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Population is an exogenous driver in PROMETHEUS. The model distinguishes only one population group.

Population projections by region are derived from the latest EC Ageing Report (for EU countries) and from the UN World Population Prospects, medium fertility scenario (for non-EU countries).

Alternative assumptions for population developments can be used to simulate different futures/ scenarios (e.g. including the Shared Socio-economic Pathways)
