The second Scenarios Forum took place in June 2022 in Laxenburg, Austria. The goal of the second Scenarios Forum was to bring together the diverse set of communities using or developing scenarios in climate change and sustainability analysis to exchange experiences, ideas, and lessons learned; identify opportunities for synergies and collaboration between communities; reflect on the use of scenarios; and identify knowledge gaps for future research. The Scenarios Forum 2022 brought together over 500 researchers onsite and online to share experiences to date on progress toward this goal. The Forum confirmed that the SSP-RCP framework is being widely and increasingly used across a variety of research communities and assessment processes in the climate and biodiversity communities. Key discussions on future needs during the Scenarios Forum included the need for expansion of the solution space to facilitate a wider diversity of response strategies, broadening the labeling of scenarios to facilitate connection to other communities, initiating a discussion on high-end community scenarios and the tension in the scenarios framework between providing building-blocks for scientists and identifying key community-level scenarios.
