The AVOID Programme - 2010
The aim of the AVOID programme is to provide policy-relevant scientific and technical evidence to improve understanding of dangerous climate change to inform domestic and international mitigation and adaptation strategy.

  • Can we avoid dangerous impacts?
    The AVOID programme has modelled the climate change impacts that can be avoided by taking mitigation action to reduce emissions.
  • Can we limit warming to 2°C?
    AVOID has shown that limiting global warming to 2°C is possible but challenging. Early global action increases our chances of remaining below this level.

Research Highlights 2014 - Our research informed the Department of Energy and Climate Change's understanding of climate change. We also worked with Deloitte and Marks and Spencer, developed unique storm diagnostic software package, helped farmers across Africa and Asia, among many other successful research highlights.

Research Highlights 2012 - We have saw significant development of our African research as part of the University’s wider internationalisation programme, including focusing on climate, agriculture, adaption, development, and capacity building.

Research Highlights 2010 - We worked with many policy-makers including collaborating with a number of African meteorologic services to develop a system that generates real-time rainfall estimates, with the Queensland Government to understand the state's climate variability and resilience, and with the Met Office to consider how emission reductions lessen the impact of climate change on water and food security.
