The implications of global warming of 1.5°C and 2°C

This short programme of interdisciplinary research specifically aims to improve understanding of the implications of an increase in global temperature of 1.5°C and 2°C relative to pre-industrial levels to inform UK and international climate policy. It seeks to fill existing knowledge gaps on the environmental, economic and societal impacts and risks of both the resulting climate change and the mitigation actions needed to achieve the global temperature goal of the Paris Agreement of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

This project is a collaboration between a large consortium of Tyndall Centre researchers from UEA, Manchester, Southampton, Cardiff, and Utrecht University (Netherlands) and the Center for International Climate Research (CICERO, Norway).
