The model for assessing the future environmental loads based on the past socio-economic trends has been developed. By using this model, the environmental trends until 2032 in the Asia-Pacific 42 countries have been estimated. This AIM/Trend model has characteristics of econometric model and communication tool to enhance discussions and search for countermeasures by envisaging environmental conditions in a consistent way. Results of AIM/Trend model show that Asia-Pacific countries have a wide range of economy, energy, and environment conditions. It makes the country-level study in this region more important to deal with the diversity of Asia-Pacific countries.
