The Climate Futures Project

Models are powerful analytical tools that shape policy priorities, targets, and international negotiations on climate change. The Climate Futures Project is an independent initiative co-developed by the Centre for Policy Research and the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi to foster the informed and measured use of climate policy modelling studies by decision makers, scientists, journalists and concerned citizens. We apply a common framework to assess, compare, and interpret the assumptions and results of modelling studies.

The Climate Futures Project was jointly conceptualised by the Centre for Policy Research and IIT Delhi.
