NAVIGATE: Integrated assessment modelling to support climate policy

Horizon Europe

ECI lead: Charlie Wilson

By tackling existing weaknesses and lack of capabilities in the current generation of integrated assessment models, the NAVIGATE project provides new insights into how long-term climate goals can translate into short-term policy action.

NAVIGATE project partners focus on further developing integrated assessment models to represent structural change in the economy and technological change, lifestyle changes, spatial and social heterogeneity and avoided climate change impacts, and the co-benefits and trade-offs with other Sustainable Development Goals.

Stakeholders are involved throughout in shaping the model development work through user panels from the climate policy domain, businesses, and civil society organisations.

NAVIGATE will synthesise its advances towards the next generation of IAMs in a range of different products, including reports, publications, teaching material, documentation and databases.

Our work

The Oxford ECI team leads research on low-carbon lifestyle change and how innovative methods drawing on new empirical social science can improve the representation of real-world social dynamics in modelling assessments.
