Regionalisation of scenarios at new forcing levels (A4)

This study has three purposes:

The first is to confirm the suitability of the simple climate model used within AVOID. We find that our simple model approach does provide a robust replication of more complex climate models. This provides added confidence for other AVOID 2 climate simulations.
The […]

Identifying and exploring key commodity chains at risk from climate impacts (F2)

Globally, agricultural production is expected to increase in response to population and economic growth, and changes in consumption patterns . However, this growth will have to take place against a backdrop of changing conditions driven by climate change, which presents both potential risks (in terms of supply disruptions or […]

Greenhouse gas emissions from Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) (E1)

The objective of this AVOID project was to provide a scientific review and assessment of the state of knowledge relating to terrestrial carbon sinks. The project builds on the work of the IPCC 5th Assessment Report (AR5) to explore: 1) how much carbon is stored in terrestrial ecosystems […]

The impact of weather extremes on agricultural commodity prices (F3)

The global market for agricultural commodities has seen sudden price increases in response to extreme weather events in the past, and as the climate changes during the 21st century, the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events will also change. The IPCC  assesses with high confidence

Literature review of the potential of “blue carbon” activities to reduce emissions (E2)

“Blue carbon” is defined as the carbon stored, sequestered or released from coastal ecosystems of tidal marshes, mangroves and seagrass meadows.

A great deal of effort has gone into developing a policy framework around avoiding emissions from deforestation and degradation in tropical forests (REDD/REDD+). However, marine vegetated […]
