Verbundprojekt AXIS: Klimaschäden und Klimapolitik in heterogenen Gesellschaften (CHIPS) - Teilprojekt 1: Neue Schadensfunktionen und Verteilungseffekte in Integrierten Bewertungsmodellen

CHIPS brings together partners from multiple disciplines to improve the state-of-the-art in four ways: (i) an improved representation of impacts with a specific focus on poverty- and growth-relevant impact channels like capital and labor productivity, linking directly to data derived from the Intersectoral Impact Model Intercomparison project (ISIMIP1) (ii) an explicit representation of household heterogeneity in integrated assessment models (iii) conceptual advances to address multi-level equity considerations and new welfare metrics with a special focus on poverty (iv) assessment of the distributional effects of carbon pricing and climate impacts in Europe through empirics and micro-simulation. The innovations will be applied in a comprehensive analysis of distributional impacts of climate change across the SSP scenario matrix and for different climate policy targets including business-as-usual (worst case) scenarios, scenarios implementing Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) according to the Paris Agreement as well as highly ambitious mitigation goals. The results will be linked to relevant SDGs where appropriate to analyze synergies and tradeoffs.
