Questions related to Integrated Assessment
I want to learn MARKAL and TIMES energy modelling software. May I know if there are any videos/ tutorials/ study material available for the same?
Option-1: A combination of some bibliometric overview and Systematic literature review
Option-2: A straight Systematic literature review with a specific research question
Option-3: A combination of Systematic literature review and meta-analysis tools
Option-4: A combination of Systematic literature review and some part of integrated review
Option-5: A combination of bibliometric, systematic literature review, and meta-analysis tools
There is a need of integrated assessment modelling for climate change impacts evaluation.
Intra-sector for agriculture (including rapid spatio-temporal changes in soil fertility, ground and surface water availability, cropping intensity hike for meeting food demand, rapid change in insects-pests dynamics).
Inter-sectoral (for agricultural impacts_- energy, health, socio-economic concerns, industrialization, atmospheric pollution, communication, etc.
Climate change on agriculture - well documented, mostly on point results & lack of regional validations
Existing Models deal with crop-weather interaction in solo, with boundary conditions for other bio-physical and socio-economic aspects fixed, in most of the studies.
Need to evolve IAM (Integrated assessment modelling) at this this stage
There should be some research group working on this aspect, or formation of a group to initiate these actions in near future
What are the most recent developments with Integrated Assessment Modelling (Models that integrate earth system science with economic models)?. Do any treat total factor productivities as endogenous variables of climate and climate policy?
Inter-sectoral interaction plays an imp role in evaluating the impact. Sectors have been evaluated in isolation, there is strong need to integrate them, we are all interested to develop the methodology to integrate various interacting sectors for accurate assessment of the impact of climate change. There is also a need to develop integrated assessment models for climate change impacts, regards
