13 November 2018 - 15 November 2018
The purpose of the IAMC Annual Meeting is to:
Several IIASA researchers from the Advanced Systems Analysis Program (ASA), the Ecosystems Services and Management Program (ESM), the Energy Program (ENE), and the Water Program (WAT) will participate and give presentations. The preliminary program of all presentations can found here.

Land-based mitigation strategies 1
Demand for energy and food, including the impact of lifestyle change 1
Investigating global diet change dynamics by linking models of human behavior to IAMs
Sibel Eker (ASA, ESM), Gerhard Reese, Lei Gao, Michael Obersteiner (ESM)
Scientific Working Group Meetings
Presentation on emission downscaler
Matthew Gidden (ENE)
Attaining multiple SDGs 1, 2
Bending the curve on terrestrial biodiversity loss: A multi-model assessment
David Leclere (ESM), Michael Obersteiner (ESM), Rob Alkemade, Rosamunde Almond, Mike Barrett
The meeting is open to researchers from organizations involved in integrated assessment modelling and their research collaborators. The meeting is not intended for the general public or press. Individual researchers are free to share their findings with the press as they wish outside of the meeting. But, at the meeting itself participants are expecting to be able to freely discuss their work off the record. Hence, press-related activities, including filming and direct quotes, are not appropriate for this meeting.
Overview and History of the IAMC
The Integrated Assessment Consortium (IAMC) is an organization of scientific research organizations. The IAMC was created in 2007 in response to a call from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for a research organization to lead the integrated assessment modeling community in the development of new scenarios that could be employed by climate modelers in the development of prospective ensemble numerical experiments for both the near term and long term.
