[Call for submissions] AGU Session:Quantifying and attributing climate change impacts across sectors


Posted by Lila Warszawski on July 4, 2017

We would like to make you aware of the following session convened by Jacob Schewe and Katja Frieler, which will take place at the upcoming 2017 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union in New Orleans on 11-15 December:

Session ID: 26714
Session Title: GC061. Quantifying and attributing climate change impacts across sectors
Section/Focus Group: Global Environmental Change
Session Link 
Session description:

Climate change impacts many economic and societal sectors - from food production to infrastructure to health - and interacts with other major drivers of global change, such as land-use change or population growth. Therefore, to accurately quantify the global impacts of future climate change, two things are necessary: impacts must be integrated across sectors; and climate change as a driver must be separated from other drivers, without neglecting the potential interactions between different drivers. This session invites research that contributes to such a holistic impact assessment and attribution - for example, by studying impacts in multiple sectors; or by using methods that allow comparison across sectors (e.g. a consistent model simulation framework such as ISIMIP); or by attributing observed or projected impacts or damages to different drivers. We welcome studies presenting new and relevant analyses as well as those focusing on methodological innovations.

The abstract submission site is now open. The deadline for all submissions is Wednesday, 2 August 23:59 EDT. Early submissions close on 26 July.

This session will be particularly interesting for, but not exclusive to, those with results based on analyses of the most recent ISIMIP simulation rounds.

We are looking forward to your submissions and to a lively session!
