This study notes that under current carbon-emission rates, this temperature rise will occur around the middle of this century, with damaging effects on coastal businesses and ecosystems, while also triggering major human migration from low-lying areas. Global sea-level rise will not be uniform, and will differ for different points of the globe.

This lunchtime seminar analyses the relationship between the distribution of income and the carbon content of household consumption. Household carbon is estimated by linking expenditure data to productive sectors and their carbon intensity derived through input-output analysis. Assuming (conditional) homogeneity in preferences, the research finds that complete income redistribution might have raised household carbon in 2009 by about 2.5%.

Call for Proposals: Modelling Pension Funds under Climate Change

By Robert Lyons on 11th April 2017
Found in: Calls

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries is inviting proposals for a project on modelling pension funds under climate change. The project will develop quantitative illustrations of the impact on UK pension scheme assets and liabilities of a small number of climate change scenarios. The aim is to help pensions actuaries assess the potential magnitude of climate change impacts and hence when climate change might be relevant to the funding advice they give. The closing date is 12 May 2017.

Community resilience to climate change

Disadvantaged groups need to be helped to cope with the cost pressures caused by climate change, according to a new report compiled by the University of Dundee for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. The report warns that shocks such as extreme weather events and stresses like changes in the cost of living will interact to generate hardships for local communities.

The authors of this paper compare the impact of intensification in the beef and dairy sectors via two pathways; either intensification within a system (eg, a mixed crop-livestock system) or through transitioning to another more productive system (from pasture to mixed crop-livestock production) and assesses the mitigation potential that could arise. The paper reviews the impacts of these forms of intensification on both GHG emissions, land occupation and land use change (LUC), the last of which has often been excluded in other similar analyses.
