Abstract

A modified version of the GTAP-E model is developed in order to assess the effects of alternative climate change policies on economic and carbon emissions. We propose regional disaggregation which allows the role of major countries in economic as well as emission responses to be better defined. Sector disaggregation is closely related to international energy balances in order to calibrate the model on more realistic emission levels. An ad hoc emission intensity calibration is also implemented for better representation of sector-based emission levels. A specific analysis on substitution elasticities in the energy nests completes the proposed adjustments to the original GTAP-E model.
