At HELIX we are assisting decision-makers and the research community in making adaptation to our changing climate more understandable and manageable by providing a set of credible, coherent, global and regional views of different worlds at 2, 4 and 6°C,  and now 1.5°C.

We have further focus on delivering the knowledge needs of Northern Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and European.
