The conference aims to understand the impacts of warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and assess the feasibility of meeting the challenges in the Paris Climate Agreement. It is hosted by the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute, with CICERO as a partner organisation.
A Commentary in Nature Climate Change argues that an IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C should focus on resolving fundamental scientific and political uncertainties, not fixate on developing unachievable mitigation pathways.
Emissions of particles, in particular soot, from local fires in southern Africa have increased due to human activities. Along with increasing global CO2 levels, these particles have led to a reduction in precipitation during the dry season in the region. The findings, published in a new Nature Communications paper by CICERO and the University of Leeds, illustrate that reducing or cleaning local fires may help to counteract reduced rainfall.
How to relate to climate change and climate policy if you earn your living from oil?
The goal of this workshop is to advance the link between the knowledge and evidence base of future climate and the practical application of adaptation planning and decision-making.

The REMIX project studies how the renewable energy policies in six countries influence the EU policy and vice versa.
The Sustainable Market Actors for Responsible Trade project (SMART) is an Horizon 2020 project that does research that promotes sustainable development within the planetary boundaries. CICERO contributes with research on hotspot analysis and dissemination and stakeholder engagement.
ToPDAd or Tool-supported policy development for regional adaptation provides a comprehensive assessment of regional, national, and EU-level adaptation needs, strategies and policies.
Future Narratives is a collaboration between Nordland Research Institute (NRI), CICERO, the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), and the Kola Science center (KSC).
Precipitation is arguably the most direct link between the climate and human society. We depend upon existing precipitation patterns for fresh water and food production, and global infrastructure is designed to withstand current precipitation extremes.
