Writing in the prestigious journal Nature Climate Change, KI professor Vanessa Schweizer discusses the benefits and limitations of current approaches to integrated climate change research, which refers to studies that aim to inform policies for adapting to climate change or for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.
Such research relies upon (as well as informs future iterations of) large interdisciplinary efforts for knowledge integration, which are channeled through reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
