2002 Quantitative Scenario runs from 1995 to 2050
World Economy & Population to 2100
Note: All scenarios depart from the world in about 1995-2000, influenced by current driving forces. By the year 2100 - the end of each trajectory in the figure - the path has fractured into many possible future worlds due to different responses to critical conditions.
Equity Trajectories to 2100
Note: Average incomes in rich and poor regions for 2000 are for OECD and non-OECD, respectively. As a scenario approaches the line of equity, the difference between incomes in rich and poor areas diminishes.
