Environmental Impact and Sustainability Applied General Equilibrium Model (ENVISAGE) 

Developer or Source: World Bank

ENVISAGE is a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model that assesses interactions between economies and the global environment as affected by anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. The model is designed to analyze a variety of issues related to the economics of climate change, including baseline emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, impacts of climate change on the economy, adaptation by economic agents to climate change, greenhouse gas mitigation policies—taxes, caps and trade, the role of land use in future emissions and mitigation, and the distributional consequences of climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation—at both the national and household level.
