Title: NIAM: National Integrated Assessment Model - Proof-of-concept development and application

Author: Kevin Hanslow


This paper describes the initial development of a national integrated assessment model, based on the MMRF model used to analyse the CPRS. The initial development was geared towards delivering a proof of concept simulation to demonstrate the feasibility of the development of such a model. In consultation with the CSIRO, it was decided that a reduction in water availability would be an appropriate simulation, being of relevance and interest, especially in the context of climate change, and entailing a realistic load of model development in the timeframe allowed.

JEL classification: C68.

Keywords: CGE models, water, climate change.
