Programme themes and objectives
Multiple Hazards was workstream (a) from the work package From climate hazard to climate risk. One paper that resulted from this project found that future climate change is likely to have a serious impact on two of the UK’s agricultural staples, dairy farming and potato growing.
Communication of Uncertainty
Communication of Uncertainty was workstream (h) from the work package From climate hazard to climate risk. The project reviewed empirical studies from the cognitive and psychological sciences exploring non-experts’ responses to uncertain climate information. It was led by the University of Leeds and has now been completed.
Two infographics have been produced to communicate the findings from the project:
The UK-SSP project has developed shared socioeconomic pathways (SSPs) for the UK, to help answer key questions about the country’s resilience to climate change.
Improving Climate Hazard Information
This Met Office work package focuses on improving climate hazard information, viewed in the context of being able to use the information as part of quantifying climate risks.
Initial implementation of risk assessment frameworks with UKCP18
Work package (c) of the From Climate Hazard to Climate Risk project is on ‘Initial implementation of risk assessment frameworks with UKCP18’. This work package has translated raw climate projections into more impact relevant metrics, such as the change in frost days or extreme rainfall over the UK, and provides them for different levels of future global warming from 1.5°C above pre-industrial times up to 4°C of global warming.
