AVOID 1: Implications of technological development and regional climate damage costs for international climate policy

May 23, 2012
|

We attempt a first analysis of the dynamics of the current international climate negotiations in terms of a novel stylised model of economic growth that balances short‐term economic wellbeing against the disutility of climate change in the longer‐term.  As a first approximation, we see that countries […]

AVOID 1: Improved rapid response climate impacts projections

April 2, 2012
|

A new modelling framework is developed to make rapid projections of climate change impacts, at a regionally aggregated level, for a number of different climate change impacts. The framework uses existing and accepted modelling and statistical techniques and incorporates scientific understanding of uncertainty in projections of future climate […]

AVOID 1: Future worlds: a narrative description of a plausible world following climate change

February 13, 2012
|

This report presents a short narrative summary description of the potential impacts of climate change at three spatial scales – global, city and community. At each scale, the summary draws together evidence from AVOID reports, the published literature and expert judgement to present a high-level overview of what […]

AVOID 1: What are the consequences of temperature overshoot on future sea-level rise?

January 20, 2012
|

Previous computer modelling studies have shown that for scenarios where atmospheric CO2 concentration is stabilised after an initial increase, the near-surface air temperature is rapidly near-stabilised but sizeable rates of sea-level rise can continue for more than 1000 years.

This study shows that if CO2 […]

AVOID 1: Reconciling LULUFC accounting with modeled mitigation targets

January 16, 2012
|

The flux of CO2 due to land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) is estimated in a variety of science- and policy-based assessments. Each approach uses different data and methods as they are designed for different purposes. Results are not directly comparable with each other and […]
