Country-level Social Cost of Carbon / Database Explorer
- Geographical scope:National and Global
- Initial Release:2018
- Referent:Laurent Drouet
The Country-level Social Cost of Carbon Database Explorer presents the work of Ricke et al. (2018). It contains uncertainty bounds under all scenarios, model specifications and discounting schemes. Country-level population and GDP projections are issued from the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSP) database. Gridded climate projections are based on the Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP) and were generated by climate models participating to CMIP5. By default, the SSP are projected along with the closest RCP in terms of radiative forcing.
