Published by admin on

The study “Unintended consequences of climate change mitigation for African river basins” by Matteo Giuliani, Jonathan Lamontagne, Mohamad Hejazi, Patrick Reed and Andrea Castelletti was selected as National Champion of the Frontiers Planet Prize 2023, which celebrates breakthroughs in sustainability science, rewarding solutions that show measurable potential to help humanity remain within the boundaries of the Earth’s ecosystem. 

The study explores how future climatic and socio-economic developments will affect existing and planned infrastructure for energy and food production, and how to design adaptation pathways that reconcile economic development, societal well-being and ecosystem health. The analysis spans multiple scales and seeks to understand how global climate change policies and international investments affect local communities, and to provide evidence-based feedback to correct unexpected distortions and negative impacts.
