This Project report explores a number of scenarios and simulations using empirical models that incorporate a number of the important yet uncertain drivers of change that will influence developments in the future. Scenario analysis is necessarily limited in scope, including only aspects of drivers for which there are adequate data and models that incorporate them. Uncertainty about the future means that it is not possible to credibly assign probabilities to the absolute results of the scenarios, but the analysis does allow exploration of a range of plausible futures while acknowledging the inherent uncertainties of the approach.
