    The standard approach to the production of climate information is probabilistic in nature, with quantified uncertainties. There is a growing awareness of the limitations of this approach from the perspective of practical useability for decision-making, which has led to the emergence of more narrative-based or ‘storyline’ approaches. In this talk I will explain the rationale behind the storyline approach to the construction of useable climate information at the local scale, and discuss how it can be used to frame climate evidence in the context of adaptation.
