The Asia-Pacific Integrated Modeling/Computable General Equilibrium (AIM/CGE) model was developed to analyze the climate change mitigation and its impact. To meet this objective, the energy system is disaggregated into energy supply and demand sides. Agricultural sectors are also disaggregated for appropriate land-use treatment. The model is designed to have the flexibility to be used at a global and individual country scale.
