The damages are considered at the macro and sectoral levels. In the C3IAM/EcOp, the relationship between temperature variation and total economic output is incorporated as the damage function. In the C3IAM/GEEPA&MR.CEEPA, the climate impacts on agriculture, labor productivity, energy, health, extreme events, and so on are included. The damages are calculated with the climate variables at the grid level.
