This report presents an assessment of global and regional impacts of climate change under six different levels of climate forcing and five plausible socio-economic scenarios which define population exposure to this change. Four of the climate forcings are based on Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs), and produce median […]

How does climate impacts research make use of IPCC scenarios? Policy card B

Like most climate impacts research results, the AVOID 2 findings are usually stated with reference to a small set of future scenarios. There are separate scenarios
for atmospheric greenhouse gas concentration (the Representative Concentration Pathways, or RCPs) and for socioeconomic development (the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways, or SSPs). This […]

This report presents an assessment of the global and regional impacts of climate change under climate scenarios based on the Intended Nationally-Determined Contributions (INDCs) declared by parties to the UNFCCC as of early November 2015 and as interpreted by DECC.

The estimated total emissions in 2030 are […]

Without rapid and sustained greenhouse gas emissions reductions, the effects that the climate has on global society will be increasingly felt and could in some cases intensify by the end of the century. The AVOID 2 research programme has modelled how climate change will affect people across the […]
