Abstract:

The Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP) provides a framework for the collation of a consistent set of climate impact data across sectors and scales. It also provides a unique opportunity for considering interactions between climate change impacts across sectors through consistent scenarios.

The ISIMIP3b part of the third simulation round is dedicated to a quantification of climate-related risks at different levels of global warming and socio-economic change. ISIMIP3b group I simulations are based on historical climate change as simulated in CMIP6 combined with observed historical socio-economic forcing. ISIMIP3b group II simulations are based on climate change according to the CMIP6 future projections combined with socio-economic forcings fixed at 2015 levels. ISIMIP3b group III simulations additionally account for future changes in socio-economic forcing.

This dataset contains the national and gridded historical population data for ISIMIP3b. Estimates are available for total as well as urban and rural population counts.

With version 1.1, we provide gridded population data, that is based on HYDE v3.3 (private communication with K. Klein Goldewijk, to be published). Just like the original dataset we provide total, rural and urban population per grid cell. The data for the historical period is identical to the corresponding ISIMIP3a data, adjusted for the different start and end years.

Methods:

For the historical period, please refer to the methods desciption in for the ISIMIP3a dataset: https://doi.org/10.48364/ISIMIP.822480.2.
