Roy, Joyashree; Moors, Eddy; Murthy, M S R; Prabhakar, S V R K; Khattak, Bahadar Nawab; Shi, Peili; Huggel, Christian; Chitale, Vishwas (2019). Exploring futures of the Hindu Kush Himalaya: scenarios and pathways. In: Wester, Philippus; Mishra, Arabinda; Mukherji, Aditi; Bhakta Shrestha, Arun. The Hindu Kush Himalaya assessment: mountains, climate change, sustainability and people. Cham: Springer open, 99-125.

Abstract

To illuminate future uncertainties and inform strategic plans, this chapter presents three qualitative scenarios for the status of the HKH through 2080. The scenarios (Box 4.1) emerged from a participatory visioning exercise for scenario development (also see Sect. 4.1.2) conducted by the chapter team and HIMAP secretariat between January and September 2016. Over six successive workshops, decision makers and scientists representing HKH countries determined what would constitute a “prosperous” HKH scenario for 2080—along with its less desirable alternatives, business as usual and downhill (Fig. 4.1).
