The socio-economic and climate scenarios were based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scenario framework of Shared Socio-economic Pathways (covering SSPs 1, 3, 4 and 5) and Representative Concentration Pathways (covering RCPs and ) to enable consistency and comparability across the different scales and contexts of the case. @article{osti_, title = {The need for and use of socio-economic scenarios for climate change analysis: A new approach based on shared socio-economic pathways}, author = {Kriegler, Elmar and O'Neill, Brian and Hallegatte, Stephane and Kram, Tom and Lempert, Rob and Moss, Richard H and Wilbanks, Thomas}, abstractNote = {A new set of socioeconomic scenarios (Shared Socioeconomic .

  Figure Global patterns of observed climate change impacts reported since AR4. Each filled symbol in the top panels indicates a class of systems for which climate change has played a major role in observed changes in at least one system within that class across the respective region, with the range of confidence in attribution for those region-wide impacts indicated by the bars. impacts. Coping with climate change remains a daunting challenge. Figure Overview of climate change impacts according to the IPCC AR4 (IPCC, b) (numbers in the right-hand sidebar refer to the corresponding chapters in the AR4). Figure Cascade of uncertainties in climate change impact assessment (Giorgi, ).

The book basically focuses on the following aspects, such as (i) various tools for socio-economic impact assessments, (ii) indicators for assessing socio-economic sustainability, (iii) test auditing of the indicators, (iv) linkages between socio-economic and environmental impacts of bioenergy, (v) socio-economic impact of biofuels on land use Cited by: 3. Climate impact assessment needs to take account of two interrelated processes: socio-economic change and climate change. To date, future change in socio-economic systems has not been sufficiently integrated with an analysis of climate change impacts. Participative and synthetic scenario approaches offer a means for dealing with critical issues of indeterminacy, innovation, reflexivity and.

A suggestion for mapping the SRES illustrative scenarios onto the new scenarios framework of representative concentration pathways (RCPs) and shared socio-economic pathways (SSPs) is presented.

This paper describes the way in which the socio-economic projections in the SRES scenarios were applied in a global-scale assessment of the impacts of climate change on food security, water stresses, coastal flood risk and wetland loss, exposure to malaria risk and terrestrial ecosystems.

Approaches to Climate Change Impact Assessment. Changes to the climate and consequences for real world systems are typically investigated from either of two perspectives, these are commonly referred to as: ‘top-down’ or ‘bottom-up’ approaches.

The process of assessing climate change and its impacts involves the simulation of a range of.Climate scenarios are used as a tool to assess the relationship between climate change and the event, and to identify the impact thresholds to be analysed for risk.

In this approach climate scenarios are not the centre of the assessment, but they can support threshold identification, uncertainty quantification and planning action to reduce risk.Developed to inform the National Climate Assessment, and a landmark study in terms of its breadth and depth of coverage and conducted under the auspices of the U.S.
