Climate Equity Monitor – an online dashboard on equity in climate change
The atmosphere is a global commons. Contrary to its widespread portrayal as a pollutant, carbon dioxide is necessary for life, as well as giving rise to global warming in higher concentrations. This idea is elegantly captured in the concept of the carbon budget. For global warming to be limited to a specified rise in global average temperature, the world’s cumulative emissions of greenhouse gases must stay within a specified limit associated with this temperature rise.
M S Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) established in 1988 is a not-for-profit trust. MSSRF was envisioned and founded by Professor M S Swaminathan, agriculture scientist with proceeds from the First World Food Prize that he received in 1987.
