While the Paris Agreement, adopted in 2015, aims at limiting global warming to well below 2°C, concerns remain that current global greenhouse gas emissions are on track to warm the climate by more than that target. In order to adapt to high-end climate change and foster actions to avoid it, it is vital that decision-makers have access to reliable scientific information on these uncertain, but potentially high-risk, scenarios of the future.
The booklet features research, packaged for policy-makers, on impacts and adaptation relevant to sectors including food, freshwater, forestry, coastal protection, nature conservation, urban areas, human health and foreign policy. It also addresses cross-cutting impacts, challenges and opportunities for transformational change as a response to multiple, interacting risks.
