How to run individual scenarios
Select 'Scenario Analysis' on the top left corner of the IFs home screen. Select 'Quick Scenario Analysis with Tree' from the dropdown menu. This will take you to a new interface that allows for scenario construction as well as the ability to load pre-made scenario files. The SSPs are all pre-made and loaded in the 7.32 version of IFs. To load SSP2 select 'Add Scenario Components' from the header. Select SSP2 using the following path:
World Integrated Scenario Sets > SSP scenarios > SSP2Final
Select the 'Run Scenario' option. A screen will load and the user will be prompted to enter the run year, or the time horizon of the projection. Select 2100. Select 'Start Run."
There are many ways to visualize Base Case and scenario results in IFs. The Flexible Displays allows a user to select displays that contain a wide variety of forecasted variables (sometimes in combination with historical data series), create graphs and view tables of these displays both singly or in combination with others, and even do analysis using comparison and relationship options in the menus. Not all of the variables available in IFs can be found in Flexible Displays, as its purpose is to provide users with an access to commonly-used variables for forecasting. If you wish to access the full range of variables and parameters, you can do so in Self-Managed Displays.
