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 […]

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 […]
