NAVIGATE Partners Meeting (closed event)
The second NAVIGATE partner meeting takes place in remote due to the COVID global emergency.
NAVIGATE is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme and carried out by a consortium of 15 European organisations and two others BRIC countries organizations (Brazil and China). It aims to develop the Next generation of AdVanced InteGrated Assessment modelling to support climaTE policy making. It will critically improve the capability of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) to inform the design and evaluation of climate policies by targeting major advancements in two areas: describing transformative change in the economy, in technology and in consumer goods and services, and describing distributional impacts of climate change and climate policy.
In work packages 2-5 the partners focus on further developing the 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. In work packages 1 and 6, the partners aim to increase the usability, transparency, legitimacy and hence uptake of IAM results by key user groups.
At the core of framing these work packages is the stakeholder dialogue. It is structured around three user panels from the climate policy domain, businesses and civil society organizations and also includes stakeholders from expert communities that relate to IAM work. Those stakeholders are involved in the project to elicit user needs and perceived hurdles for greater uptake and use of IAMs and give feedback on the research and IAM development work in the other work packages.
