Effects of 2˚C Warming: IMPACT2C modelling results for a 2˚C climate for key global vulnerable regions
Climate and disaster risks
The IMPACT2C project provides information on the potential impacts of 2˚C of global warming. This Policy Briefing Note provides a summary of the findings on the impacts of 2˚C on key vulnerability global hot-spots, focusing on the Maldives, Bangladesh and the Niger and Upper Blue Nile River Basins in Africa.
Overall, the analysis finds that large impacts are projected for all three vulnerability hot-spots, even for 2˚C of global warming, and that early adaptation is needed to address these changes.
