Next steps - SWIM future developmentMany todos, priority can depend on your feedback and collaboration
- Develop variant to contribute to new scenarios process
- Update pledges (NDCs) post COP26, towards COP28 stocktake.
- Update core science to be more consistent with AR6
- Subdivide large countries with provincial detail, especially relevant to
- Energy transition
- Migration (adapting to climate +other drivers)
- Develop impacts => demography to complete the loop
- Develop future land-use, agriculture, biodiversity, methane ...
- Re-develop educational version, with questions auto-adapting to student level - hiding complexity while retaining science consistent with research version
(recall early applet-version JCM appreciated for teaching in many countries)
- Illustrate how scenarios / policy-goals evolved (roll-back time, show youth "might-have-been" - thus progress)
(Combining 25yr history of model with author's experience in UNFCCC/IPCC)
- Fuzzy-control policy responses (illustrate what happens if people don't believe models!)
It's challenging to develop interactive models to calculate fast and robustly in response to infinite combinations of parameters chosen by remote users
- a skill insufficiently appreciated by academia prioritising static papers.
SWIM shows potential to scale further, evolution depends on your support and collaboration.
What could we do with this? Suggestions welcome!
