A significant paper with PML authors has been handpicked to feature in a virtual special issue of the journal Current Opinions in in Environmental Sustainability with commentary for COP21.

This collection of 29 influential review articles published by the journal during the last six years represents some of the best thinking on climate change developed since COP15 in Copenhagen in 2009, with the aim of informing and supporting the efforts of COP21 in Paris this month and future discussions. 

The article “Modelling the potential impacts of climate change and human activities on the sustainability of marine resources” represents a sample of relevant themes in climate change research and policy and is the only marine related article within the issue.

First author on the paper Professor Manuel Barange commented: “The science of climate change is evolving to focus on modelling the interactions between physical, biological and human systems. There is growing recognition that this is the only way society can explore the trade-offs between adaptation and mitigation measures, so that we move towards planned rather than unexpected futures. I am excited to have our paper selected for this special issue coinciding with the COP21 event”.
