Webinar: Integrated Assessment Modeling of Land-Use Implications of Bioenergy

30. January 2018, Webinar

"On January 30th, the committee will conduct a webinar on integrated assessment modeling of the indirect land use impacts of bioenergy production. Dr. Kate Calvin, Research Economist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Joint Global Change Research Institute and Dr. Alexander Popp, Group Leader for the Land-Use Management Research Domain III: Sustainable Solutions at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research will provide overviews of the approaches to modeling land use and capabilities to understand direct and indirect land use changes associated with bioenergy development within different integrated assessment models, as well as future research needs. Discussion and Q&A will follow their remarks."

Conference Session: Towards a 1.5°C World: The Ocean Response

11. February 2018, Portland / USA

"The Paris Agreement (COP21) has set an aspirational goal of limiting global surface warming to 1.5oC. This goal requires immediate action, with almost all future scenarios indicating that carbon dioxide removal or other geoengineering approaches will be needed. Irrespective of geoengineering measures, emissions must peak in a little over a decade and then rapidly decrease to become zero or even net negative. Given the prominent role of the ocean in storing emitted carbon dioxide and excess heat, the exploration of the potential response of the ocean to a drop in or even negative emissions is of scientific interest and of societal relevance."
