COP 20 policy cards

December 12, 2014

A series of climate change policy cards produced to coincide with COP 20 in Lima, which provide up-to-date evidence for policy questions in this area.

The long term temperature goal of the UNFCCC aims to limit global average warming above pre-industrial levels to no more […]

Future temperature responses based on IPCC and other existing emissions scenarios (A1)

This study re-analysed emissions data produced for the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report. It presents the spread in emissions from this dataset at 2020, 2030 and 2050 compatible with warming limits of 1.5 °C up to 4 °C. Confidence is provided in the modelling system by comparison […]

Review of existing emissions pathways and evaluation of decarbonisation rates (C1)

Achieving deep reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is required to limit the risks we face from climate change.  This assessment presents an overview of recent studies examining GHG emission pathways that are compatible with limiting average global temperature rise to levels close to 2°C or at […]

AVOID 1: Key findings

June 24, 2014
The information in this brochure is a summary of the results from phase 1 of the the AVOIDing Dangerous Climate Change research programme.

A UK Government-funded initiative, the ground-breaking AVOID research programme has helped to put the latest scientific knowledge about dangerous climate change […]


AVOID 1: Modeling the Role of Remaining Tropical Forests in Climate Change Mitigation

September 17, 2013

At the time this study was carried out, land use change (LUC) resulting from deforestation and other smaller sources contributed ~17% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, whilst more recently (29) the deforestation component alone has been estimated to contribution 11% of the global total.. SRES baselines assume […]
