Socioeconomic Climate Scenarios of the International Panel on Climate Change
2pm ET Tuesday, July 24, 2018
Starting in 2016, an international team of climate scientists, economists and energy systems modellers have built a range of scenarios that examine how global society, demographics and economics might change over the next century as the result of different degrees of warming. They are collectively known as the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs).
These SSPs are now being used as important inputs for the latest climate models, feeding into the International Panel on Climate Change’s sixth assessment report due to be published in 2020-21. They are also being used to explore how societal choices will affect greenhouse gas emissions and, therefore, how the climate goals of the Paris Agreement could be met.
