This section gives an overview of the models developed and maintained at MNP. These models are internationally accepted and published in many scientific journals.
The FAIR model is a tool to analyze environmental and costs implications of climate regimes. The policy decision-support-tool FAIR aims to assess the environmental and abatement costs implications of climate regimes for differentiation of future commitments. The model links long-term climate targets and global reduction objectives with regional emissions allowances and abatement costs, accounting for the used Kyoto Mechanisms.

The Global Integrated Sustainability MOdel (GISMO) is a modelling framework to analyze developments in Quality of Life in relation to the three sustainability domains: People-Planet-Profit. GISMO enables to analyze the effects of specific policies on broad human development, and the interaction with the environment.

GLOBIO3: A global biodiversity model
The GLOBIO3 model uses quantitative relationships between environmental pressure factors and biodiversity, based on state-of-the-art knowledge from literature. By combining the results related to individual pressures, the overall change in biodiversity is calculated in terms of Mean Species Abundance of original species (MSA) and the extent of ecosystems.
IMAGE: Integrated Model to Assess the Global Environment
IMAGE is a dynamic integrated assessment modeling framework for global change. The main objectives of IMAGE are to contribute to scientific understanding and support decision-making by quantifying the relative importance of major processes and interactions in the society-biosphere-climate system
