Climate Science and Impacts

Our Science Team conducts cross-cutting research which analyses impacts and risks in order to understand the full implications of climate change, as well as to help develop pathways and scenarios to limit the increase in global temperatures to 1.5°C. The team also contributes to major reports on climate change and sustainable development, always aiming to make the latest climate science easily accessible by presenting the highly complex findings in a way that is comprehensible to stakeholders in the international climate arena.
