MOD_GW – Modelling and evaluation of political processes to implement sustainable economic systems in industrial and developing countries

As a response to climate change economies are seeking to include sustainable practices which balance economics, ecology and human well-being. Thus, the policies aiming towards achieving the sustainable economy need to be both economically and politically feasible. This project makes a contribution to the ecological-economic-political composite models literature. We will design scenarios and model different climate policy instruments using the DART-CLIM model with a time horizon of 2050. Using Bayesian estimation techniques we will then estimate policy beliefs for different political agents. As an end result we will be identify political performance gaps in incentives and knowledge gaps.
