UNFCCC Climate Dialogues Special Event
A new generation of climate models, COVID-19 and the Paris Agreement: Introducing the second CONSTRAIN Zero In Report
4pm CET Wednesday 2 December
Join us for this event which will bring together some of the latest scientific knowledge on climate modelling, global climate policy, and the climate impact of COVID-19 into a coherent narrative.
Specifically, it will highlight how a new generation of climate models, CMIP6, is informing our understanding of future temperature change, what this tells us about meeting the Paris Agreement’s ambition of limiting temperature rise to 1.5°C, and how climate action can move forward in the light of COVID-19.
Speakers include leading researchers from the Horizon 2020-funded CONSTRAIN consortium with a broader panel of stakeholders including policy makers, NGOs and communications specialists.
