ACACIA – Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate

The EU-funded project ACACIA (Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate) aims to provide improved scientific knowledge of the non-CO2 impacts from aviation emissions of relevance for the development of harmonised policies and regulations for a more climate-friendly aviation system.

ACRoBEAR – high-latitude risk of wildfire and disease

The ACRoBEAR (Arctic Community Resilience to Boreal Environmental Change: Assessing Risks from fire and disease) project will quantify changing risk of boreal forest fire and natural-focal disease for local communities in high northern latitudes under changing environmental and climatic conditions.

How changes brought on by coronavirus could help tackle climate change

Global carbon emissions are likely to fall in 2020 due to reduced economic activity as a result of the coronavirus, and changes brought on by the crisis could influence how emissions evolve in future, writes CICERO researcher Glen Peters. 

The flip side of the new Coronavirus outbreak - reduced air pollution mortalities?

In February, air pollution over large parts of China was reduced by 20 to 30 percent (1). If air pollution levels remain this low for a longer-term period, 50,000 - 100,000 premature deaths could be avoided according to calculations by CICERO, Norway's leading institute for climate research.

Natural gas and oil use push up global CO2¬ emissions in 2019, according to latest data

Global CO2 emissions are projected to rise a low 0.6% in 2019 due to robust growth in natural gas and oil use, and despite a decline in coal consumption. Natural gas has been the dominant driver of global emissions since 2012.

Rapid Response for Energy and Climate Policy Analysis

The world today is moving fast and so are user needs. Research projects can take years to develop and get funded, but many research questions in climate policy are relevant on short time scales. We believe there is an opportunity to fill a research niche answering contemporary policy challenges through synthesis of current knowledge and through fusion of existing data and methods.

Global Carbon Project

The Global Carbon Project was formed in 2001 to help the international science community to establish a common, mutually agreed knowledge base that supports policy debate and action to slow the rate of increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
