Broadening the Dialogue: Exploring Alternative Futures to Inform Climate Action

While there is more to explore, research, and learn, society cannot afford to wait until we know all the answers. Undertaking exercises such as the one described in this report help us to challenge our assumptions about the future, identify blind spots, and assess opportunities and risks, ultimately allowing us to design and adapt strategies that are more appropriate for the changing world we will all face between now and 2050.

The report covers:

  • Trends, Emerging Developments, and Wildcards: critical drivers that are likely to shape the next few decades
  • Different possible futures that pose challenges—and offer opportunities—for decarbonization between now and 2050
  • Possibilities for how different programs and strategies for climate action may fare in an uncertain future
