This Scenarios Report presents scenarios on three themes: energy, waste and transport.

These scenarios were developed to illustrate the environmental impacts associated with new technology, potential future consumption, the implementation of current government targets of reduction, and various other factors. They take current national and regional targets and best practice into consideration.

The scenarios in this report are example situations and are not a comment on current regional strategy. However, in some instances such as the waste scenarios, the region's strategy targets were used to guide scenario development. As a result they complement the strategy findings and do not aim to replace them.

As the scenario results and methodology are linked, they have been reported together here.
