AVOID 1: Can we avoid dangerous impacts?

December 14, 2009
|

Key findings

Stringent mitigation action to limit warming to 2˚C avoids a large amount of the climate impacts that would otherwise occur in the 21st century. However, since even this stringent action will not avoid all climate change impacts, significant damage or adaptation costs will […]

AVOID 1: Can we limit warming to 2 °C?

December 5, 2009
|

Key findings

AVOID has shown that limiting global warming to 2°C is possible but challenging. Early global action increases our chances of remaining below this level.
There is some flexibility in the year of peak emissions (between 2014 and 2020). However, a later peak year […]

AVOID 1: Mitigation scenarios of ocean acidification using simple and complex models

October 29, 2009
|

Ocean acidification as a result of absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere is believed to have potentially detrimental impacts on ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles in the ocean, affecting both its productivity and its ability to act as a “buffer” to climate change.

A combination of simple and complex […]

AVOID 1: Global Greenhouse Gases Emissions Review (LULUCF)

October 9, 2009
|

This report assess the current knowledge about CO2 emissions from land use change over the last century. For the previous 25 years, 20% of all anthropogenic CO2 emissions came from LULUCF (Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry). Most landuse change emissions are from deforestation, but there is […]
