As you know, the modeling community is currently preparing an update of the Shared Socio-economic Pathways (SSP).
As a first step, we are conducting a review process of the basic drivers of the SSPs: projections of GDP and population (including education by age cohort and gender).
You can access the first review phase of the SSP update data at https://data.ece.iiasa.ac.at/ssp. The data is currently provided at national resolution, and you also find the basic drivers of the initial SSP scenarios (from 2013) in this Scenario Explorer for easier reference.
To access the “SSP Scenario Explorer – Review for the 2023 Update“, you will have to create an account at https://manager.ece.iiasa.ac.at/ if you do not have an account for the IIASA Scenario Explorer infrastructure yet.
You find more information about the review process on the About page of the Scenario Explorer. You can also download the slides from a recent IAMC-ICONICS webinar on that page.
Review comments are due by September 8, 2023. You can submit your comments via the Feedback feature in the Scenario Explorer – click on your user name in the top-right corner (after login) to select the context menu.
When giving feedback, please provide the following information:
- Your name and institution
- The source and of projections (the “model” name and scenario)
- The specific region/variable/year where your comment applies
- A detailed description of your comment/remark/question
Please be as precise as possible, e.g.
Projections x for country y after year z should be higher, because …
Projections x are not consistent with source y …
We are looking forward to your comments and feedback on the first phase of the SSP-update review process.
