Climate Change and Switzerland 2050 — 9708Kb
This report describes possible impacts of climate change and vulnerabilities of the environment, economy and society in Switzerland due to the emission of greenhouse gases that are to be expected up to the year 2050. The potential impacts on various areas are discussed, as well as measures and strategies to adapt to the expected changes. Because global emissions reduction can only mitigate the situation in the long run, the expected global warming to 2050 will take place largely independently from such efforts. If greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced considerably within the coming decades, the consequences of warming may turn out to be much more severe in the second half of the century than those presented in this report.
