In 2007, the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) presented an authoritative overview of the science, effects and mitigation of climate change. Recently, Met Office Hadley Centre and AVOID programme scientists have conducted new research to better understand potentially ‘dangerous’ climate change and inform the global debate on what needs to be done to avoid it.

The work of the AVOID programme provides scientific evidence to underpin many aspects of domestic policies on mitigation options and adaptation strategies, as well as international negotiations on reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
