GLOBAL-IQ is an EU FP7 research project focusing on the quantification and assessment of global change impacts. “Global change” refers primarily but not exclusively to climate change. The GLOBAL-IQ project recognizes that social scientists have more generally to assess the consequences of global changes upon our societies as a whole (social impacts), while contributing to policy action both to mitigate the impacts of climate change and to identify the most relevant adaptation strategies in the environmental domain (ecological impacts). The project provides significant advances in the two directions of social and environmental global impact assessments, and in the identification of optimal ecological and social policy mixes with the harmonization and application of global integrated assessment modeling frameworks.

Refine the cost and benefits analysis of the Stern Review. For this purpose, an assessment is made of the impacts and associated costs of global change for the transportation system, water and natural resources (agriculture, forests), health impacts, the energy sector and population dynamics.
Examine the consequences of such global changes upon competitiveness in the different regions of the world, with particular emphasis upon Europe and international trade issues.
Build a closer link between climate change oriented economic studies and globalization studies
Define and share with the partners the conceptual framework to analyse global changes, their impacts and economic and social consequences. The global changes on focus include climate change, resource scarcity, environmental threats and global competition.
Provide a state-of-the art review of global changes, offering a sound analysis of global trends, drivers, key uncertainties and cross-impacts for different dimensions
Contribute to the analysis of external costs associated to new global patterns of transport associated to changes in international trade, applying the GRACE tool to compute environmental (pollution) and social (safety) externalities of transport.
