Understanding the pathways to and impacts of a 1.5°C rise in global temperature

Leave a comment

The Natural Environment Research Council, in collaboration with the Department of Energy & Climate Change, invites proposals for its call on understanding the pathways to and impacts of a 1.5°C rise in global temperature. This aims to advance our understanding of the research needs and provide timely evidence to inform policy following the introduction of the 1.5 °C limit in the Paris agreement. The three potential areas to be addressed are the following:

•linkage between the cumulative level of future net emissions of greenhouse gases and future temperature increases in the 1.5-2.0°C range;

•feasibility of pathway options that limit warming to 1.5°C and their additional consequences;

•environmental impacts of a 1.5°C temperature rise compared with 2°C.

This call will support seven projects worth up to £100,000 each.

The deadline for proposals is 18 Aug 16.
