NIOZ researchers are doing relevant research on climate change. They are also involved in innovative climate adaptation projects. This week we introduce you to five colleagues and their work.

IPCC publications

Last year IPCC published their report on the physical science of climate change. It said the climate crisis was “unequivocally” caused by human actions, resulting in changes that were “unprecedented”, with some becoming “irreversible”.

The second publication, which is presented today, deals with the impacts of climate breakdown, sets out areas where the world is most vulnerable, and details how we can try to adapt and protect against some of the impacts.

A third section, due in April, will cover ways to cut greenhouse gas emissions, and the final part, in October, will summarise these lessons for governments meeting in Egypt for the UN Cop27 climate summit.
