Climate change

Greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are drivers of climate change, and are now at their highest levels in history. To avoid catastrophic impacts on communities, livelihoods, and economies, action must be swift and coordinated. The Paris Agreement is propelling this action, but achieving the Agreement's goal of limiting global temperature rise to below two degrees Celsius will depend on transforming climate knowledge into policy.

UNU seeks to help the vulnerable populations most affected by climate change, and to ensure global resilience later. UNU research contributes to policies and measures for mitigating and recovering from climate-related disasters, including insurance safety nets for island communities threatened by sea level rise and extreme weather as well as strategies to reduce carbon emissions.
