The College ensures originality of research at the frontline of science will inevitably lead students into overlapping areas of study across the four research clusters:
- energy systems and the requirements for a national transition towards a dominant contribution of renewable energies
- emission pathways and mitigation strategies including trading systems, intergenerational equity, carbon budgets and mitigation costs
- all aspects of the climate system itself
- climatic impacts on the global supply network of goods and services with a special focus on energy infrastructure

Are you looking to understand what countries' post-2020 climate targets actually mean in terms of emissions? Or what they need to be if we want to limit warming to within 2°C? Do you want to receive our latest stream of facts for the Paris negotiations? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then the below resources are for you.
For every country that announced an INDC to the UNFCCC we have produced a factsheet with an estimate of the country's total greenhouse gas emissions, per-capita emissions, ranking in comparison to all other countries, and more. See here.
What commitments should individual G20 countries put forward for the world to have a chance of staying below 2°C? See our interactive website www.mitigation-contributions.org.
Every day until the Paris negotiations end, we will share a random fact that underpins the negotiations. To keep up to date, follow our twitter feed @ClimateCollege.
