Global scale impacts of climate change: a multi-sectoral analysis
A cross-disciplinary (NERC-funded) project led by the Walker Institute, University of Reading involving a consortium of twelve partners funded under Theme 3 (Implications of global environmental changes for the sustainable use of resources) of the NERC QUEST programme. The project assessed the global-scale impact of climate change using a range of linked impact modules and impact indicators, representing impacts on water resources, flood risk, food production, biodiversity and human health and well-being on land, at the coast, and at sea. The UCL component focused on the evaluation of catchment-scale water resource impacts of climate change through the development / modification of hydrological models of a range of river basins around the world including collaboration with scientists in South Africa, Canada, Brazil and China. This research led to a special issue of the high impact peer-reviewed journal Hydrology and Earth System Science, a number of other publications and kick-started a stream of research on the uncertainty associated with modelling the hydrological impacts of climate change.
