Briefing note 16: What is left in the global carbon budget?

August 25, 2021 3:37 pm Published by Comments Off on Briefing note 16: What is left in the global carbon budget?

The Paris Agreement requires countries to commit to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions to ensure that the global average temperature remains well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C. But how likely are we to meet these targets?

Briefing note 15: Can we limit global warming to 1.5C°?

Irrespective of tipping points, climate change adaptation efforts will be less costly and disruptive to society – and will stand a better chance of success – if warming can be limited to 1.5°C rather than 2°C or higher. We therefore in no way advocate for policies that forgo pursuing the ambition to limit global warming to 1.5°C, regardless of whether that target remains feasible or not.

The Philippines is one of the most exposed countries in the world to tropical cyclones. In order to provide information to help the country build resilience and plan for a future under a warmer climate, researchers built on previous research to investigate implications of future climate change on tropical cyclone activity in the Philippines.
