At a glance

Three new basic scenarios were calculated. The reference scenario (A-00-2015) describes the growth that seems most plausible in the coming decade. The “high”scenario (B-00-2015) is based on a combination of hypotheses that promotes future population growth, whereas the “low” scenario (C-00-2015) combines hypotheses, favoring a slower population growth.
