The objective of the ClimateCost project is to advance the knowledge on the economics of climate change, focusing on three key areas: the economic costs of climate change (the costs of inaction), the costs and benefits of adaptation, and the costs and benefits of long-term targets and mitigation. This technical policy briefing note provides an overview of the global assessment of major extreme outcomes: those tipping elements and major impacts that have high economic and social costs.

With contributions from Sukaina Bharwani , Mohamed Hamza , Chris Hope, Alistair Hunt, Vikrom Mathur , Neela Matin , Richard Taylor and Paul Watkiss .
