Projecting the future
Scenarios are stories about how future events might impact our critical infrastructures, our cities, organizations, and even our nation. They are not predictions, but rather act as plausible descriptions of what could happen. Scenarios are stories built around carefully constructed plots, based on data, drivers, events and ‘trends’. They assist in the selection of future strategies, they reveal uncertainties opening up lateral thinking and initiating a learning process.
The scenarios incorporated in the SIM-CI simulation platform cover a broad range of issues and events related to vital infrastructures and urban processes. It allows governments, CI stakeholders and crisis teams to assess events upfront and work out effective response and mitigation strategies.
