Greenhouse Gas Abatement Cost Model (GACMO)

Developer or Source: UNEP DTU

The tool is made to assist countries or regions in making an analysis of their GHG mitigation options to be used in e.g. the NDC, the National Communication, or a Low Carbon Development Plan. GACMO can be used by countries to calculate and visualise their Business as Usual Scenario (BAU), mitigation scenario and provides calculations for all the desired mitigation options selected.
