Current trends in greenhouse gas emissions show that limiting global warming to the international target of 2°C is likely to be difficult without radical emission reductions. We are three complementary and interdisciplinary research projects funded by the EU to investigate climate change impacts and adaptation beyond 2°C globally, regionally and locally and across a range of land, water and coastal ecosystems. map

HELIX is providing a set of credible, coherent, global and regional views of different worlds at 2, 4 and 6°C to make adaptation to our changing climate more understandable and manageable. IMPRESSIONS is advancing understanding of the consequences of high-end climate change and helping European decision-makers apply this knowledge within integrated adaptation and mitigation strategies. RISES-AM deals with adaptation deficits to marine climate factors (sea-level rise and storminess) affecting world’s coasts, where adaptation/mitigation and economic development may become intertwined issues for high end conditions.
