The 2015 Paris Agreement of the 21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change resulted in an ambitious agreement to hold “the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C.” This agreement has spurred many researchers to adjust research to 1.5°C and has caused a new trajectory of research to ensue.

The conference will bring together researchers, policy makers, businesses and members of civil society to understand the impact of 1.5 degree agreement. It will explore options for reaching the 1.5 degree target.

The 1.5 degrees conference will contribute to the evidence base for the Special Report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, which the IPCC has been called upon to produce in 2018.
