About the Report:
How are human activities affecting global climate change? And how will a changing climate impact complex human systems, including commodity markets, financial and insurance sectors, and national and international security? This report is a major multi-country climate change risk assessment, which considers: the future pathway of global emissions; the direct risks arising from the climate’s response to those emissions; and the risks arising from the interaction of climate change with complex human systems.
It has been co-authored by: Sir David King (formerly, UK Chief Scientific Adviser and currently UK Special Envoy for Climate Change), Prof. Daniel Schrag (Director, Harvard University Center for the Environment), Prof. Zhou Dadi (Emeritus Director-General of the Chinese government's Energy Research Institute, and member China National Expert Committee on Climate Change), Prof. Qi Ye (Director, Brookings-Tsinghua Centre for Public Policy at Tsinghua University) and Dr Arunabha Ghosh (CEO, CEEW), with inputs from numerous experts from the fields of climate science, energy technology, water, food and agriculture, health, finance, accounting, insurance, and defence and national security.
