AIM/CGE can assess several types of policy. Key areas where policy responses can be introduced in to the model are:

  • Climate policy
    • Mitigation (e.g. carbon tax and recycle, emissions trading)
    • Adaptation (e.g. food consumption aid or subsidy)
  • Energy policy (e.g. air pollution, energy taxes)
  • Land use and agriculture policy
  • Other policies (e.g. income tax change, subsidy change and so on )
