Aerial shot of Haiti flooded after a major stormTackling climate change will be a defining challenge for the next decade and beyond. It will take extensive planning and far reaching-change; but it also presents a new opportunity to create exactly the kind of future we want to see, as we transform our society to achieve the goal of net zero emissions by the middle of this century at the latest.

Creating our shared, sustainable future starts with access to clear, accurate information that describes what we know about the causes and impacts of climate change, how we know it and what actions we can take in response. This resource is developed jointly by the Grantham Institute at Imperial College London and the Grantham Research Institute at London School of Economics and Political Sciences. It covers evidence and information on climate science, the economics of climate change, international climate action and the meaning of a just transition.
