Announcing the start of AVOID 2

Following the successful completion of the first phase of the AVOID research programme in 2013 we're pleased to announce that the second phase has now begun.

  • AVOID 2 will run over the next two years, a critical period in the international climate change negotiation process when the scale of greenhouse gas mitigation ambition and structure of a global climate agreement will be shaped.
  • The AVOID research programme was established in 2009 to provide scientifically-robust, policy-relevant answers to questions directly related to the Ultimate Objective of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which is to 'prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system'.
  • AVOID 2 will build on previous outputs from the programme to provide Government analysts and climate negotiating teams in both the UK and internationally with the robust and policy relevant science needed to inform the international policy discussions, leading up to UNFCCC COP21 in Paris.
