IAMC Award for extraordinary contributions to the field of integrated assessment modeling

 

During the Twelfth IAMC Annual Meeting held last 2-4 December 2019 in Tzukuba, Japan, the Integrated Assessment Modeling Consortium was proud to honour  Cate Kalvin (PNNL’s Joint Global Change Research Institute)  with the IAMC Award for extraordinary contributions to the field of integrated assessment modeling

 

Cate Kalvin is being recognized for:

  • Her energetic contribution to the IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land. She was originally the representative of the IAM community – and ensured that throughout the report also an integrated perspective on the relevant issues was taken, and also the IAM work was represented.
  • Her long standing contribution to the IAM research – which has continued this year. Her contributions are in many areas, including land use in IAMs, energy systems but increasingly the link between the Earth System Modelling community and the IAM community. Here, also this year she has continued to play a major role with contributions to IAM/ESM cooperation projects in the US – but also as part of land-use MIP in CMIP6.
