A new modelling framework is developed to make rapid projections of climate change impacts, at a regionally aggregated level, for a number of different climate change impacts. The framework uses existing and accepted modelling and statistical techniques and incorporates scientific understanding of uncertainty in projections of future climate.

This is a novel modelling approach which improves upon previous impacts modelling by including a more complete assessment of uncertainty, provides the capability for more robust risk based projections of climate change impacts, and allow the dominant source of uncertainty to be assessed.
