Guidance on application

  • Define very well what the objectives of the scenario analysis are: adjust the scenario development and analysis according to the objectives.
  • Make sure the scenarios are transparent and well documented
  • Scenario should not be implausible (they should be recognizable and internally consistent)
  • Be aware and explicit about the limited scope of a certain model used
  • Present as many scenario as possible and as few as necessary: it is important to represent many views and possibilities, however with too many scenarios it will be difficult to communicate results (analyse many, report few)
