To fill in emissions not reported for scenarios in their submission to the database, we use a large set of harmonized AR6 global emissions pathways for inferring pathways based on the relationships between concurrent species development over time observed in the larger set.

Infilling ensures that all relevant anthropogenic emissions are included in each climate run for each scenario. This makes the climate assessment of alternative scenarios more comparable and reduces the risk of a biased climate assessment, because not all climatically active emission species are reported by all IAMs. The infilling methods used are from an open-source Python software package called ‘silicone’ (Lamboll et al. 2020)

This file is the harmonized emissions database that was used as "infiller database" for the IPCC AR6 WGIII report on the Mitigation of Climate Change, using data from the chapter on Mitigation Pathways Compatible with Long-Term Goals (Riahi and Schaeffer et al. 2022) as available in the AR6 Scenarios Database (Byers et al. 2022).
