AVOID 1: Achieving global temperature targets with different combinations of greenhouse gases

May 17, 2011
|

In principle, it is possible to achieve a given global temperature target with different combinations of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. However, atmospheric CO2 also has a direct effect on some impact sectors, such as ecosystem and crop productivity. Plant growth, and hence productivity, is influenced by […]

AVOID 1: Simulation of AVOIDed impacts on crop productivity and food security

August 5, 2010
|

This report describes an assessment of the effects of climate policy on the crop productivity and food security. The study had two components. The first used a crop simulation model to simulate the effect of climate change on maize productivity. The second used these results, with earlier simulations […]

AVOID 1: The implications of climate policy for avoided impacts on water and food security

January 28, 2010
|

This project has assessed the impacts of climate change avoided by a set of climate policies, focusing on water resources stress, crop production and undernourishment.

Climate change has the potential to increase water resources stresses for many millions of people. The climate policies evaluated here reduce the effects […]
