Climate change and the High-End cLlimate Impacts and eXtremes (HELIX) project

The Paris Agreement set a target of holding global warming to well below 2°C and pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.

However, it is clear that this is a huge challenge. Some suggest that despite our efforts, it will not be achieved.

We therefore need a clear idea of what the world could look like above these levels of warming. Although communities, governments and businesses across the globe are working to avoid extreme climate change, they are also increasingly planning to adapt to unavoidable changes.

About the High-End cLimate Impacts and eXtremes (HELIX) project

HELIX addressed this by bringing together scientists from leading institutes to understand how climate change could affect the natural and human environments.

The HELIX team have calculated a range of impacts at 1.5°C, 2°C, 4°C, and 6°C global warming, to help us understand the risks we need to avoid and manage those that are already unavoidable.
