The aim of this document is to define, quantify and downscale the reference futures A1 and B2 to European forest wood chain specific input material. The quantified material serves as consistent input to the model runs in the Modules. The full input material is available on the Eforwood portal. Furthermore this document describes the actual scenarios to be used in Eforwood. Scenarios are neither predictions nor forecasts, but are used to create a consistent image of a future. Each storyline assumes a distinctly different direction for future developments, and does not necessarily aim to be realistic. Conclusions should not be drawn from these storylines; nor do they represent an expressed view of the Eforwood consortium on the future of European forests and the European forest industry.
