There are local air pollution benefits from pursuing greenhouse gases emissions mitigation policies, which lower the net costs of emission reductions and thereby may strengthen the incentives to participate in a global climate change mitigation agreement.
Climate change is expected to have significant implications for the world economy and for many areas of human activity. A main conclusion of the review is that there are large uncertainties, which are not fully reflected in existing estimates of global impacts of climate change in monetary units.
This paper uses the WITCH model, a computable general equilibrium model with endogenous technological change, to explore the impact of various climate policies on energy technology choices and the costs of stabilising greenhouse gas concentrations.
The purpose of the workshop is to confront views and new results from model-based research regarding future GHG emissions trends, the appropriate policy instruments to achieve given targets and the incentives for countries to adopt them.

Chapter 7 of the OECD Economic Outlook No. 63. The issue of climate change is the subject of renewed interest, in large part owing to the adoption of the Kyoto Protocol on 10 December 1997.

OECD Economic Studies No. 19, Winter 1992. By modeling the decisions of households and firms, applied general equilibrium (AGE) models are able to capture the economic mechanisms that link, in each period of time, the available resource base to man-made emissions of CO2. The OECD Economics Department has developed a global dynamic AGE model with the objective of quantifying the economic effects of policies aimed at reducing
