The Safe Landing Climates Lighthouse Activity is an exploration of the routes to “safe landing” spaces for human and natural systems. It will explore future pathways that avoid dangerous climate change while at the same time contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including those of climate action, zero hunger, clean water and sanitation, good health and well-being, affordable and clean energy, and healthy ecosystems above and below water. The relevant time scale is multi-decadal to millennial.
The Lighthouse Activity will focus on five main scientific themes:
- Understanding High-Risk Events
- Perturbed Carbon Cycle
- Water Resources
- Sea Level Rise
- Safe Landing Pathways
