The impacts avoided with a 1.5 °C climate target: a global and regional assessment

Article English OPEN
Arnell, Nigel; Lowe, Jason Anthony; Lloyd-Hughes, Ben; Osborn, Timothy J.;

The 2015 Paris Agreement commits countries to pursue efforts to limit the increase in global mean temperature to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. We assess the consequences of achieving this target in 2100 for the impacts that are avoided, using several indicators of... View more
