>>>> *ABSTRACT*

>>>> The climate change research community developed a new framework for the

>>>> creation and use of scenarios to improve interdisciplinary analysis and

>>>> assessment of climate change, its impacts, and response options. This

>>>> process includes a set of forcing pathways (the Representative

>>>> Concentration Pathways or RCPs) that can be combined with alternative

>>>> socioeconomic development pathways (Shared Socioeconomic Pathways or SSPs)

>>>> to create a range of scenarios. The SSPs define the high-level evolution of

>>>> human and natural societies over the 21st century through a narrative

>>>> storyline and a set of quantified measures under the assumption of no

>>>> significant climate feedback. One objective of the SSPs is to provide

>>>> sufficient information and context for impacts, adaptation, and mitigation

>>>> analyses.

>>>>

>>>> *BIO*

>>>> Kristie L. Ebi is director of the Center for Health and the Global

>>>> Environment (CHanGE), and Rohm and Haas Endowed Professor in Public Health

>>>> Sciences at the University of Washington. She has been conducting research

>>>> and practice on the health risks of climate variability and change for over

>>>> twenty years, focusing on understanding sources of vulnerability,

>>>> estimating current and future health risks of climate change, and designing

>>>> adaptation policies and measures to reduce the risks of climate change in

>>>> multi-stressor environments. She has supported multiple countries in

>>>> Central America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific in assessing their

>>>> vulnerability and implementing adaptation measures. As an author

>>>> contributing to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 4th

>>>> Assessment Report, she shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Mr. Gore. She has

>>>> been an author on multiple national and international climate change

>>>> assessments. She co-chairs the International Committee On New Integrated

>>>> Climate change assessment Scenarios (ICONICS), facilitating development of

>>>> new climate change scenarios. Dr. Ebi’s scientific training includes an

>>>> M.S. in toxicology and a Ph.D. and a Masters of Public Health in

>>>> epidemiology, and two years of postgraduate research at the London School

>>>> of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She has edited fours books on aspects of

>>>> climate change and has more than 200 publications.
