Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) model
The standard Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) model is a multiregion, multisector computable general equilibrium model. GTAP-E is an extension of the GTAP framework (data base and model) used to evaluate costs of abatement and to assess the spill-over effects of greenhouse gases (GHG) abatement policies via international trade and sectoral interaction.
Key questions addressed:
- What is the cost of abatement and how does GHG abatement interact with international trade and sectoral interactions?
- What are the GHG emissions associated with international economic interactions?
- What is the impact of emissions trading on the global economy?
Sample data inputs:
- Economic and energy data
Sample quantitative outputs:
- Real income changes
- Macroeconomic impacts on welfare and terms of trade
- GHG emissions
- Marginal abatement costs
