Where are we and where do we want to go - Impacts avoided by limiting warming to 1.5°C

The recent IPCC report provides comprehensive evidence of climate change impacts today and how they will increase with 1.5°C warming and even more with 2°C. The project HAPPI-DE has contributed significantly to the science base underlying the 1.5°C special report. This event will showcase the project's main findings in the context of the report and discuss its significance for the upcoming climate conference COP24 and the Talanoa Dialogue with experts from government and civil society.

Past Events

Join us for an event during Climate Week NYC 2018 to find out about some of the latest science findings on climate impacts, and benefits of limiting global warming to 1.5°C, and what this means for implementation of the Paris Agreement, especially in terms of the scale and pace of decarbonisation required to achieve this goal, and what policies are needed.  
At this Global Climate Action Summit in California event, the Climate Action Tracker, will outline the necessary actions and policy measures to accelerate the Paris Agreement’s implementation, focussing on a key area of the summit: Healthy Energy Systems.  
The Talanoa Dialogue, informed by the IPCC special report on 1.5°C, should ultimately result in ramping up the next round of climate pledges. This event will present the latest 1.5°C science in terms of already present and projected climate impacts and look at some concrete measures key sectors of the economy could undertake to enable the large, rapid emission cuts urgently needed to limit warming to 1.5°C. Delegates from SIDS and LDCs will join us to take stock of progress at the session and look at what next steps are necessary to ensure that the Talanoa Dialogue is successful.  
Climate Analytics will host or support a number of events during the upcoming UNFCCC climate summit COP23, which will take place 6-17 November in Bonn, Germany.  
Fiji’s presidency of COP23, the first ‘Islands COP,’ offers an opportunity for SIDS and other most vulnerable countries to put their concerns and ambitions at the forefront of the negotiations and in the implementation process. This event will present the latest science on climate impacts on small islands to underscore the urgency of action, discuss the key ingredients for success of COP23 and opportunities to accelerate Paris Agreement implementation.  
Climate Analytics and California Environmental Protection Agency are co-hosting a Climate Week event to showcase examples of progressive policies and projects that can help put the world on a 1.5°C pathway, in line with the Paris Agreement. The event is an opportunity to look at how sub-national actors - like cities, businesses or investors - can move forward with climate action despite current federal administration decisions. The event aims to contribute to the discussion about the opportunities for key stakeholders – business community, investors, industry, civil society and academia – to sustain the momentum from Paris and support sub-national climate action.  
This event will focus on what is needed for rapid decarbonisation for the world to get onto a 1.5°C pathway, in line with the Paris Agreement. Our analysts will present the benefits of the 1.5°C limit, demonstrate the latest positive technological and political developments and outline concrete steps for rapid decarbonisation. It will also discuss the key political moments that provide opportunities to move climate action forward.  
We're launching a new report that elaborates a strategy for phasing-out coal in the European Union and its member states and provides a science based shut-down schedule of coal power plants in line with the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal. Join us for a discussion with report authors and European political decision makers and diverse civil society actors.  
As part of this year's Climate Week NYC, we will hold an event focusing on how delivering on the 1.5°C temperature limit of the Paris Agreement will not only avoid severe risks and damages, especially to the most vulnerable, but will strongly contribute to global prosperity through enhanced food security, energy independence, health and wellbeing, livelihoods and resilience.  
On the eve of the Signing Ceremony of the Paris Agreement, our experts present their analysis of the delicately balanced global climate deal and the next steps for its entry into force and implementation. They also clarify the latest climate science, assess the emission reduction pledges to date and debate how the world can adopt pathways consistent with the agreement to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C.  
Climate Analytics event focusing of some of the key issues for vulnerable countries following the adoption of the Paris Agreement, an exploration of what the 1.5°C temperature limit means for European climate policy and steps in the implementation of the agreement.
