MetadataShow full item record
The TEA model is a multi-regional and multi-sectorial Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model that tracks the production and distribution of goods in a dynamic recursive setup for the global economy. The model is built in GAMS and departures from the framework of the GTAPinGAMS model . The dynamic structure and parameters are based in other CGEs and Integrated Assessment Models (AIM) as the MIT EPPA model [2, 3] and the COFFEE model , considering the evolution of primary factors and technologies in 18 regions and 21 economic sectors. The TEA model was built to perform economic analysis of future greenhouse gas emissions scenarios, considering technological and structural changes in the global economy, under different climate policies. The TEA model can work on a standalone basis but also soft-linked to other tools and models (such as the COFFEE model), in order to increase the capacity of Brazilian research groups to contribute to the scientific and policy debate on climate change and its related topics. This document describes the TEA model structure and its functionalities.
