At the meeting last week in Beijing, I committed to produce a revised draft
summary of the storylines for the web site. This is attached. Please could
you send comments to me, and copy them to Naki, by Friday 16 October at the
At the meeting we agreed on a few points which I've tried to address in the
revised draft. The most important is that 1) we see the scenarios as
multidimensional rather than adopting the earlier two-axis scheme; 2) we do
not want to have a "central", "best guess" or "business-as-usual" case; 3)
we do not want to appear to be making policy recommendations and do not want
A1 and B1 to appear as "utopias".
Hence, I have paid particular attention to redrafting B2 which was
previously presented as "dynamics as usual", and to including positive and
negative features in all of the scenarios.
Thanks very much for your prompt comments!
