IPCC Expert Meeting: Climate Research Community Looks Into Future Scenarios
Experts from the climate change research community will meet with representatives of the IPCC at the meeting hosted by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Laxenburg, Austria.
Scenarios, as used in research with integrated assessment models, are stories about potential ways that the future might develop.
They feature specific quantitative elements and details about how sectors such as the economy, climate, and the energy sector interact. By looking at scenarios, researchers look for insights into the paths and circumstances that might lead to specific objectives.
