SENSES – Climate Change Scenario Services: Mapping the future
- Time horizon:2017 - 2020
- Institution(s):PIK Potsdam (Coordinator), IIASA Laxenburg, SEI Stockholm, Wageningen University, University of Applied Science Potsdam.
The SENSES (Climate Change ScENario SErviceS) project investigates potential socio-economic futures in the face of climate change and how this knowledge can be made accessible to a broader public. SENSES develops tools and approaches to make the new generation of climate change scenarios more comprehensible, culminating in a climate service for decision makers. Central needs are identified in a co-creation process between scientists and users.
The results will be combined to a tailor-made, userdetermined Climate Scenario Toolkit including scenario visualization tools and co-creation techniques for three stakeholder groups:
1. National and international climate policy makers;
2. Regional climate scenario users;
3. Businesses, particularly financial businesses.
