LOCOMOTION held a Special Session at the 14th Conference of the European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE 2022) in Pisa. The attendees were able to learn more about the work carried out within the LOCOMOTION project, including how IAM could represent human development indicators, income inequality, health and wellbeing better.
Because the sustainability crisis is multifaceted, efforts to consistently incorporate as many relevant dimensions as possible are critical for effective policy advice. Despite continuous development of IAMs, there are some key pervasive limitations. To discuss more about this, on Wednesday, June 15 2022, LOCOMOTION hosted a special session at the ESEE 2022 in Pisa. The conference was organised by our consortium partners, the University of Pisa.
With more than a room full of people, the attendees were able to learn more about the work done in LOCOMOTION, whose main goal is to create a new IAM with a detailed representation of the socioeconomic and environmental impact of different pathways, such as the European Green Deal and Postgrowth This project expands on the MEDEAS model developed in a previous H2020 project.
Included in this session are the following presentations:
- Environmental Module of the Integrated Assessment Model WILLIAM
- A macroeconomic multi-regional IAM with input-output linkages: physical boundaries, climate change feedbacks and energy poverty
- Simulation of scenarios towards sustainable energy systems with the “Within Limits IAM” (WILIAM) model
- Overview of WILIAM Energy & Materials Modules
- Humanising Integrated Assessment Models: Putting the “I am” in IAMs
