The Scenarios Forum 2019 aims to bring together a diverse set of communities working with the framework on integrated climate change scenarios to share their experiences, progress and plans. The framework uses Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs), Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs) and other approaches to characterizing future societal and environmental conditions to investigate global change issues, including the SDGs.
By taking stock of progress and facilitating scenario-related research, this meeting will inform the use of scenarios in the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), and help ensure a research base sufficient to inform future assessments and policy initiatives.
The Forum is presented by the International Committee on New Integrated Climate Change Assessment Scenarios (ICONICS) and the Pardee Center for International Futures at the University of Denver, Colorado, US.
