11.4.3 National and regional studies of responses to mitigation policies

As individual countries have begun contemplating domestic policy responses (see Chapter 13), an increasing number of studies have focused on more detailed national cost assessments. This increased detail includes both more careful representation of proposed and actual policy responses and more disaggregated results by sector, region, and consumer group. This detail is difficult to achieve in the context of a global model. We briefly summarize the results of studies for various countries/blocks on the basis of the literature available.
