Abstract: Th is paper reviews the economic modelling of climate change impacts, using integrated assessment models (IAMs). IAMs consider the most relevant interactions and feedback mechanisms of the human-climate system and integrate various relevant academic disciplines, ranging from climate modeling to economics. Our paper distinguishes two approaches: First, the reduced-form approach considers the direct link between climate change and economic impacts. Th at approach is highly aggregated or top-down as it does not consider in detail the cause-eff ect mechanisms between climate change and specifi c impacts. Second, the bottom-up approach models the specifi c framework and channels between climate change and its impacts on a specifi c area. Finally, the paper discusses ways to further improve the bottom-up methodology.
