A Framework for Plausible Scenario Planning

Climate Futures is a framework for developing plausible scenarios of future climate for adaptation, mitigation, and sustainability efforts at local, regional, and global scales. The framework includes a means for using data to examine climate impacts on commodities. At the core of Climate Futures is the Climate Reanalyzer, an interactive website for visualizing an array of climate and weather models and station data. Here, we provide a roadmap for how to utilize Climate Reanalyzer and to develop plausible scenario plans for your region of interest. Climate Futures and Climate Reanalyzer are initiatives of the Climate Change Institute (CCI) at the University of Maine.
