The first webinar will take place on Monday 22 February 2021, at 9:00 EST. The series will kick off with a tutorial on the SSPs and RCPs followed by a Q&A session with Kristie Ebi (UW), Brian O’Neill (JCGRI), and Bas van Ruijven (IIASA). Participants will learn about the SSP-RCP scenario framework and the matrix architecture, SSP regional and sectoral extensions and available resources for learning about and working with the SSPs.

The second webinar is scheduled for 6 April (9:00 EST), and will discuss plans forward for the SSPs and RCPs based on the Achievements and Needs of the  Scenarios Framework.  For more information about ICONICS and the SSPs, click here.
