This document provides technical information on the two datasets constituting the NGFS reference scenarios (see NGFS Climate Scenarios for central banks and supervisors). One dataset includes transition pathways and data on macro-economic impacts from physical risks, both of which available in the NGFS Scenario Explorer provided by IIASA. The other dataset covers the physical impact data collected by the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP). These datasets are generated with a suite of models including integrated assessment models, general circulation models, sectoral impact models and global macroeconomic damage functions. They are linked together in a coherent way by aligning global warming levels. For each dataset, the most important technical details of the underlying academic work and a short user guide are provided. These are complemented by links to other resources with more detailed information.
