Integrated assessment of climate and socio-economic change

Currently funded integrated assessment projects address the development of stringent climate policy pathways to address the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change; the BRIDGE project on the energy-water-food nexus in Brazil, and the integrated economic analysis of enhanced rock weathering as a 'soft' geoengineering approach, through the Sheffield-based Leverhulme Centre for Climate Change Mitigation. Enhanced weathering acts to draw down atmospheric CO2 while simultaneously mitigating parallel global environmental problems of ocean acidification and soil degradation. Previously funded integrated assessment projects include the OU-led European consortium project ERMITAGE, on model integration for global environmental change assessment, and research topics have covered the economic impacts of sea-level rise, climate change impacts on energy demand, the availability of hydroelectric and wind power, and crop yields.
