Anticipation

The combined MESSAGEix-GLOBIOM framework has global coverage and divides the world into 11 regions which are also the native regions of the MESSAGEix model (see Table below). GLOBIOM itseld has 30 regions which are aggregated to the 11 MESSAGEix regions when the two models are linked. In some scenarios, the MESSAGEix region of FSU (Former Soviet Union) is disaggregated into four sub-regions resulting in a 14-region MESSAGEix model.

In addition to the 11 geographical regions, there is a global trade region in MESSAGEix for market clearing of global energy markets and which also represents international shipping bunker fuel demand, uranium resource extraction and the nuclear fuel cycle.
