Climate Change and Environmental Futures

Environmental change, including climate change, represents perhaps the defining challenge of our time. At Exeter we work with leading scientists, policymakers and businesses from across the world to apply our leading modelling expertise to address challenges such as:

  • Climate impacts, including the regional and global impacts of 1.5, 2, 4 and 6 degree centigrade changes on water, food systems, environmental hazards, human health, and natural ecosystems.
  • Earth system and integrated assessment modelling including tipping points, adaptation and mitigation modelling, and the development of models to address economic factors, land use, and water, food and energy systems.
  • Environment and human health working in close partnership with our European Centre for Environment and Human Health.
  • Human factors and social responses to change.
  • Sustainable buildings, energy and environmental policy and the impacts of climate change on the built environment.
