CRESCENDO has teamed up with the White Rose Brussels to organise its 1st policy briefing at the European Parliament on Tuesday 28th February
Realizing the Paris Agreement – Pathways and benefits of limiting global warming to 1.5C
London MEP Seb Dance has kindly agreed to host us in the European Parliament for a topical policy briefing that will address the 1.5/2°C global warming target set out in the Paris Accord, and will emphasize the use of Earth system models for investigating possible pathways to limiting global warming to 1.5/2°C. This engaging event will also assess the socio-economic benefits of limiting warming to these levels compared to less ambitious targets.
The event will outline scientific activities being pursued by CRESCENDO and other research to support the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on Global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels (https://www.ipcc.ch/report/sr15/), planned for publication mid-2018.
Confirmed speakers include: Colin Jones (University of Leeds), Wilfran Moufouma-Okia (IPCC WG1 TSU), Diogo de Gusmao-Sorensen (EC DG RTD), Chris Jones (Met Office Hadley Centre), Detlef van Vuuren (PBL Netherlands EAA) and Sonia Seneviratne (ETH Zurich).
Attendance by invitation only.
