An end user, for example an EU policy expert, looking at results calculated by a chain of models for different policy scenarios requires information about the uncertainty of the data. This uncertainty is some kind of "total" of the measurements and models used in the model chain. The uncertainty information is essential to the end user for evaluating the results.
