This project, funded by the Australian Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, highlights the major findings about the implications of ambitious climate policy that emerge from a sub-set of internationally recognised integrated assessment models, and critically examines the ways in which these results are presented. The analysis suggests
that further thought needs to be invested in the communication and representation of model results. Modelling results and insights will be most useful and influential when different audiences are easily able to understand them and see their relevance to policy assessments and decision-making. This project highlights the need for a more plural approach to communicating modelling results to ensure effective and relevant communication to policymakers and civil society, in a manner that provides clarity and empowers sound decisions.
