7. Climate Change: biophysical impacts and societal responses

Global anthropogenic climate change is profoundly affecting all parts of the Earth System already at current levels of warming of 1°C above pre-industrial levels. Future emissions will only exaggerate risks by temperatures and more frequent extreme weather including floods and droughts as well as rising sea level in the 21st century and beyond. These climate hazards translate into severe impacts for ecosystems as well as economy and human livelihood. In order to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and the corresponding Sustainable Development Goal on “CLIMATE ACTION”, it is essential to achieve a transformational shift to climate resilience. This would entail stringent climate mitigation to achieve the 1.5°C limit of the Paris Agreement and robust adaptation to the impacts of climate change. This session includes interdisciplinary contributions including on climate impact projections, the land-climate-water-nexus, implications for human systems including climate security, as well as climate governance from the urban to the global scale.
