ESM Research Models

The ESM research team work with a wide variety of models

FeliX Model

A system dynamics model of social, economic, and environmental earth systems and their interdependencies. More

The Global Forest Model (G4M)

Comparing incomes from forestry and alternative land uses More


A global model to assess competition for land use between agriculture, bioenergy, and forestry More


A model that optimizes the allocation of renewable energy systems from the local, regional, national or European level. More

OSKAR - Model

A forest production and management model  More

Integrated Emission Trading and Abatement (ETA) Model

  ETA model is an integrated stochastic emissions trading and abatement model allowing to analyze the robustness of emissions reduction policies under asymmetric information about emission trading parties, uncertainties of emissions and other inherent anthropogenic and natural uncertainties.  More

Integrated Catastrophe Risk Management (CRIM) Model

The Integrated Catastrophe Risk Management model (CRIM) has been developed at IIASA aiming to assist in robust decision making for managing natural disasters risks e.g., earthquakes, hurricanes, floods More

Agricultural Production Planning and Allocation (APPA) Model

The APPA model is a geographically detailed stochastic and dynamic model for spatio-temporal planning of agricultural activities to meet food security goals under natural and anthropogenic risks, resource constraints, and social targets. The model illustrates that explicit treatment of risks and uncertainties in agricultural production planning may considerably alter strategies for achieving robust outcomes with regard to sustainable agricultural development.
