Current emissions pathways are taking us above the Paris Agreement goals. We presented the latest science on impacts of climate change at 1.5°C, 2°C and 4°C global warming at the UNFCCC Conference in Katowice, Poland.
HELIX supported the production of the IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C in several important ways. 1. The decision by the IPCC to go ahead with the report With the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) invited the IPCC to provide a Special Report in 2018 on […]

The Report will inform policymakers, international climate negotiators and other stakeholders about the latest knowledge on all aspects of climate change. The bureaux […]
Our research suggests that weather extremes caused by climate change could raise the risk of food shortages in many countries. We looked at the difference between global warming of 1.5°C and 2°C and found that – despite increased vulnerability to food insecurity in both scenarios – the effects could be worse for most countries at 2°C. […]
The results of four years of rigorous research will be presented at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, hosted in Bonn under Fiji presidency. Follow us on Twitter @helixclimate and Facebook to find out which climate change impacts are already locked in.
Andrea Tilche, Head of Unit, Climate Action and Earth Observations, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation at the European Commission addresses HELIX scientists. HELIX partners met earlier this month to present the results of their interdisciplinary research on high end climate impacts and extremes. Andrea Tilche emphasises the role of HELIX and its sister projects IMPRESSIONS and RISES-AM in […]
At the festival’s Speaker’s Forum, Richard Betts will discuss the science of climate change and take part in panel discussions and interviews with other prominent figures in the climate change debate. “Climate change is a complex topic with some important and fascinating science behind it,” says Professor Betts. “As we continue the debate on what […]
