Abstract: This PACCSAP activity proposes to provide support to better understand climate change implications across the breadth of priority planning areas identified in countries that have developed or are developing medium to long-term plans (20 years or more). The scenario planning work will bring climate change information to discussions about the types of development futures that could happen in a country or area. The scenario planning can explore futures in two ways:
- how different climate futures could impact on social and economic goals, assuming continuation of current development patterns; and
- how consideration of different options for a planned major development could enhance country or area resilience to future climate change.
