This project emerged from recommendations of various international assessments on long-term global environmental issues, especially by the IPCC, which showed gaps in quality and capacity of assessment for developing countries in the area of policy modeling. The two broad themes were identified as vital in this context. First, the development of tools for policy analysis for integrating climate change and sustainable development concerns of developing country policy-makers. Second, the enhancement of capacity in developing countries for integrated assessment of climate change mitigation options in the context of sustainable national development priorities and policies. The project aims include creating an inventory of knowledge and databases for the Asia-Pacific region and proposing enhanced modeling approaches suitable to developing country dynamics and related modeling tools for integrated policy analysis for developing countries.
