Multidimensional Feasibility Visualisation Tool

The ENGAGE project proposes a novel and versatile multidimensional framework that allows evaluating and comparing decarbonization pathways by systematically quantifying feasibility concerns across geophysical, technological, economic, socio-cultural and institutional dimensions. This framework allows assessing the timing, disruptiveness and scale of feasibility concerns, and identifying trade-offs across different feasibility dimensions.

As a first implementation of the framework, Brutschin et al (2021) mapped the feasibility concerns of the IPCC 1.5°C Special Report scenarios and developed an interactive online tool that allows the user to look at the framework in more detail and to perform sensitivity analyses by defining different thresholds for each indicator and assessing how this affects feasibility evaluations.
