The Task Force on Integrated
The Task Force on Integrated Assessment
Modelling was established by the Executive Body
at its fourth session in 1986. In the following
years integrated assessment models were developed
that provided the basis for negotiation of the 1994
Oslo Protocol. The Task Force is led by the Netherlands.
Force’s main focus is to combine information
gathered from the Parties and from other Convention
bodies and through computer models assist in the
development of legal instruments (protocols). The reports
of TFIAM meetings are found in this website, but the
presentations and other technical material can be found in the
website for TFIAM managed at CIAM.
for Integrated Assessment Modelling (CIAM), which
is hosted by the International Institute for Applied
Systems Analysis (IIASA), prepares technical background
material for the Task Force. Its work focuses on
the development of the Greenhouse Gas and Air Pollution Interactions and Synergies (GAINS) model that has contributed
to the Convention’s work for many years. More
information about the current development of the
GAINS model is available on CIAM's web pages.
