Social and economic change in climate change impact assessment. Climate impact assessment is concerned with understanding changes in natural and socio-economic systems that may be attributed to anthropogenically caused changes in the by: In this paper we make an argument for the use of futures scenario approaches in climate impact assessment, both as a way of improving CIA (by systematically taking account of social change), and as a way of translating results of technical studies into a social reality that can be understood by policy.

Because SSPs do not include the effects of climate change and climate policy, they may not describe plausible assumptions for the future, but this is an intentional component of the by: 1.

Introduction. During recent decades, climate change has been one of Describing socioeconomic futures for climate change research and assessment book most discussed and studied future challenges.

The Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) has formed the central forum in coordinating and summing up the studies of climate change both as an atmospheric phenomena, and as relating to the assessments of the effects of climate change Cited by:   The new scenario framework for climate change research envisions combining pathways of future radiative forcing and their associated climate changes with alternative pathways of socioeconomic development in order to carry out research on climate change impacts, adaptation, and mitigation.

Here we propose a conceptual framework for how to define and develop a set of Shared Socioeconomic Cited by:   A suggestion for mapping the SRES illustrative scenarios onto the new scenarios framework of representative concentration pathways (RCPs) and shared socio-economic Describing socioeconomic futures for climate change research and assessment book (SSPs) is presented.

The mapping first compares storylines describing future socio-economic developments for SRES and by: Socioeconomic data for climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation assessment Alex de Sherbinin Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), The Earth Institute at Columbia University 3rd NCAR Community Workshop on GIS in Weather, Climate and Impacts 27‐29 October Overview 1.

Key challenges for using socio-economic scenarios for climate change analysis.

In this section we consider some of the major challenges in the use of socio-economic scenarios. Understanding these challenges is a precursor to identifying effective strategies for the development of new socio-economic scenarios for use in future by: Climate Change Vulnerability Data Book 5 MAPS AND DATA BY SECTOR INFORMATION INCLUDED IN THE DATABOOK This databook is intended as a resource for researchers and planners involved in understanding and developing responses to climate change in Sri Lanka.

The development of a new scenario set is now underway. This volume reports on a novel and central component of this effort – the development of shared socio-economic development pathways (SSPs).Cited by: Impacts from climate change are happening now.

These impacts extend well beyond an increase in temperature, affecting ecosystems and communities in the United States and around the world. Things that we depend upon and value — water, energy, transportation, wildlife, agriculture, ecosystems, and human health — are experiencing the effects.

The National Climate Assessment summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future. A team of more than experts produced the report, which was extensively reviewed by the public and experts, including federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of : Susan Hussein.

The wider range of potential changes in global average temperature in the latest generation of climate model simulations used in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) current assessment – versus those in the previous assessment – is simply a result of considering more options for future human behavior.

Underlying Assumptions in Studies of SES and Family Life. An a priori assumption of most research on SES, family functioning, and human development is that social position influences families across time, and that socioeconomic disadvantage has negative consequences for adults and children (e.g., Conger et al., ; Haas, ).This underlying tenet represents an Cited by: Despite these challenges, for the first time in an official U.S.

This. Climate change poses a major, and largely unfamiliar, challenge. This publication describes the process of global climate change, its current and future impacts on human health, and how our societies can lessen those adverse impacts, via adaptation strategies and by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

2. Material and Methods. The combination of a spatially detailed bio-physical/agronomic assessment tool and a global food system model provides an integrated ecological–economic framework for the assessment of the impacts of climate change and agricultural vulnerability (figure 1).The focus has been on analysing the current and future Cited by: Climate change could affect our society through impacts on a number of different social, cultural, and natural resources.

For example, climate change could affect human health, infrastructure, and transportation systems, as well as energy, food, and water supplies. Some groups of people will likely face greater challenges than others.

There are many resources available that describe the implications of climate change. Some present information on historically observed changes (e.g., temperature, precipitation) while others project changes into the future based on alternative scenarios (e.g.
