  • Description
  • Programme

The global temperature of the planet has increased in the order of 1ºC since the end of the 19th Century. This change is the result of a change in the global radiative balance and we know that it is due to human activity. Climate change is irreversible on secular scales and will continue to develop with an intensity and speed that depend on the cumulative greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, limiting a future increase in temperature is necessary if the consequences for ecosystems and society have to be mitigated. For this, it is important to quantitatively estimate the impacts of climate change in the future and discuss its importance in the framework of human rights including, among others, the right to water, food, health and development.
