Literature review of potential for adaptation to climate change impacts (B1c)

Executive summary

Very few studies have yet assessed the feasibility of adaptation to climate change on a global scale, and there are limited assessments of the feasibility of adaptation even at the local scale in a number of sectors for many regions. Where adaptation is physically […]

Reversing climate change by large scale deployment of carbon-dioxide removal through BECCS (D2b)

This report focuses on the timescales of climate reversibility under a range of Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) scenarios. The experiments performed here are based around a narrative that emissions are strongly mitigated over the 21st century with a view that climate forcing is stabilised […]

Overshoot scenarios and their climate response (A3)

This report reviews the current literature regarding “overshoot” scenarios where some aspect of the climate such as the temperature or GHG concentrations temporarily exceed a given target. The aim is to characterise such scenarios from Integrated Assessment Models (IAM) and where possible the climate to these scenarios, however […]

Synthesising existing knowledge on the feasibility of BECCS: Workshop report (D1.b)

There is a growing and significant dependence on biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) in future emission scenarios that do not exceed 2°C warming; over 100 of the 116 scenarios associated with concentrations between 430–480 ppm CO2 depend on BECCS to deliver global net […]

Synthesising existing knowledge on the feasibility of BECCS (D1a)

There is a growing and significant dependence on biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) in future emission scenarios that do not exceed 2°C warming; over a hundred of the 116 scenarios associated with concentrations between 430–480 ppm CO2 depend on BECCS to deliver global […]
