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.

HELIX, with its sister projects IMPRESSIONS and RISES-AM are the scientific organisers of this year’s ECCA2017, 5-9 June in Glasgow.ECCA2017 is the third biannual gathering of climate scientists who are assessing impacts of climate change and adaptation, which means that Glasgow will have about 800 climate scientists in town. In addition to curating the content […]
A new report looks at flood risk and economic damages under different global warming scenarios with temperature increases of 1.5, 2 and 4°C. It concludes that, if global temperatures rise by 4°C, the flood risk in countries representing more than 70% of the global population and global GDP will increase by more than 500%. The research is led […]
Some of the most important crops risk substantial damage from rising temperatures. To better assess how climate change caused by human greenhouse gas emissions will likely impact wheat, maize and soybean, an international team of scientists now ran an unprecedentedly comprehensive set of computer simulations of US crop yields. The simulations were shown to reproduce […]
