Chapter 2 (Page no: 7)

Climate projections for 2050.

This chapter provides the background for the subsequent chapters in this book, and discusses climate projections for the next few decades. While the focus is on the period until 2050, it should be noted that climate change will very likely continue well beyond the middle of the 21st century. Indeed, the long-term prospects are about not only a changed climate but also a climate that is changing over time, i.e. it is about continuous change over a long time. The same is thus also true for knowledge requirements regarding climate change impacts, as well as the motivation and need for climate change adaptation; however, these may take form.
