Event Description

Full Description:
The ultimate objective of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is to “prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system”.
In this context, the Paris Agreement sets a long-term temperature goal of holding the global average temperature increase to well below 2 °C, and pursuing efforts to limit this to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. While discussions around these temperature limits have been on-going for years, assessments of the implications of such levels of global temperature increase is still limited.

In this talk Dr Tabea Lissner from Climate Analytics will present a regionally differentiated analysis on impact shifts between these levels of warming for a range of impact indicators. Their studies show a discernible differences between the two warming levels on the regional level and our results indicate that tropical regions will bear the brunt of impacts.
