Global IQ project
World societies are experiencing large social, economic and environmental transformations. These transformations are usually described under the heading of ‘global change’, to emphasize the increasing interactions between them.
The objective of the GLOBAL IQ project is three-fold:
- to provide significant advances in the estimation of socio-economic impacts of global challenges – at Global, European and regional scale;
- to identify optimal adaptation strategies;
- to evaluate total costs and the optimal mix of adaptation and mitigation against global changes.
Granted fot three years, and led by Toulouse School of Economics, the Global IQ project involved eleven partners located in eight EU members states.
