Why is this important?

Policy makers, at the national and international level, must make important policy decisions. On one hand they must act to ensure long term environmental sustainability while on the other hand they wish to minimise the impact such decisions will have on their country’s people, industry and economy in the short term.

Such decisions are easier to make if reliable projections of the future climate are available. By the end of the four year EMBRACE project, it is expected that the improvements made within the Earth System Models will lead to a better picture of the future climate, helping policy makers make more informed decisions on how to best limit, and adapt to, future climate change.
