Sustainability Pathways (SSP1) Fundamentals for cities

Event: 11th Integrated Assessment Modeling Consortium (IAMC) annual meeting
Date: 13th-15th November, 2018 (Seville Spain)

Shared socioeconomic pathways (SSPs) have been developed by global climate change communities for analyzing long-term global societal transitions through science-driven analysis. SSPs can be transformed into local-scale socioeconomic pathways; however, the urban scale requires an in-depth understanding of specific local significant factors. Three case studies as local SSPs have been presented applying the socioeconomic dataset. Second, the preliminary goal was to compare socioeconomic components that may have significant impacts on the social transitions in each region and city.
