Socio-economic drivers - MESSAGE-GLOBIOM
|Institution||International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Austria, http://data.ene.iiasa.ac.at/message-globiom/.|
|Solution concept||General equilibrium (closed economy)|
Socio-economic drivers are typically informed by a scenario narrative that in qualitative terms describes the overall logic behind the scenarios. In the case of MESSAGE-GLOBIOM 1.0 the Shared Socio-economic Pathways (SSPs, see O’Neill et al., 2014 1) provide this overall scenario logic based on which the main socio-economic drivers, population and GDP, have been quantified. The subsections of this chapter describe how these quantitative drivers are used in MESSAGE-GLOBIOM.
