This document provides semi-quantitative trends for 50 socio-economic variables within each UK-SSP. Trends are categorised into seven categories (very strong increase, strong increase, slight increase, no change, slight decrease, strong decrease, very strong decrease) across three time periods up to 2100.
This database includes detailed quantified projections for 25 key socioeconomic variables within each UK-SSP. Projections are available at various spatial resolutions, ranging from 1km level to UK total, depending on the variable in question.
This tool provides access to essential python libraries for geospatial analysis (e.g. Geopandas, shapely, and pyproj). It provides a workflow to take the quantified projections data and interpolate/aggregate the data to specified output grids.
Interface for exploring and accessing UK-SSP products
The various products detailed above can also be accessed through an interface for each UK-SSP. The interfaces allow for easy exploration of each scenario, including scenario narratives, descriptions of key socioeconomic drivers, links between drivers, downloadable data and maps. Click below to access UK-SSP1, from which you can also access each of the other UK-SSPs. (Clicking on ‘Full screen insight’ expands the view.)
The project is commissioned by the Met Office and is funded by the UK Climate Resilience Programme. It is carried out by Cambridge Econometrics in collaboration with the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH), University of Edinburgh and University of Exeter. The development of the UK-SSPs built upon work carried out by UKCEH’s UK-SCAPE Programme delivering National Capability.
