Potential Impacts of Global Climate Change
AIM/Impact model, an integrated assessment model of climate change impacts, has been developed in order to evaluate future climate change impacts and to support decision making on the global/Asia scale. AIM/Impact model consists of sub-models for evaluating impacts on major vulnerable sectors (water, agriculture, ecosystem, human health) and linkages among them. In this chapter, the general framework of AIM/Impact and examples of model outputs are introduced with a brief description of the sub-models.
