The principal investigator of the ASSAR project for Southern Africa, Prof. Mark New recently published an article on the implications of the 1.5 degrees warming in countries that ASSAR is working in. The full article can be read here. The Paris Agreement has a goal of limiting global warming to well below 2°C, ideally 1.5°C. Understanding the local-level impacts of these global temperature targets is crucial for informing climate change adaptation needs and actions.

In addition to the full report, Mark also wrote a news piece on what the 1.5 degrees warming could imply for countries such as Namibia and Botswana which can be found on this link. For the countries ASSAR is working in (Botswana, Namibia, Ghana, Mali, Ethiopia, Kenya and India), even a 1.5°C increase in global temperature will have severe local impacts, negatively affecting water supply, agriculture, health, and other vulnerable sectors.

To compliment Mark's work the communications team compiled this infographic on the 1.5 degrees theme.
