BNP Paribas - INVACOST: Climate Initiative

INVACOST, Invasive Insects and Their Cost Following Climate Change : We know that the temperature of our planet is going to rise by several degrees over the next few decades and this will lead to long-term changes in our environment. It is quite likely that certain organisms may react. A mass insect invasion could have serious consequences for biodiversity, agriculture, public health and the economy. This is the subject which the team of INVACOST scientists are planning to investigate, with the support of the BNP Paribas Foundation.

BNP Paribas - FATES: Climate Initiative

FATES: FAst Climate Changes, New Tools to Understand and Simulate the Evolution of the Earth System
Computer climate models are the only tools available to gauge the speed of future change. It is therefore very important to assess whether these models are indeed capable of correctly predicting the speed of these changes. The purpose of FATES is to study with precision the natural global warming that took place at the end of the most recent glacial period, some 20,000 to 10,000 years ago. This data will serve as a benchmark for testing out the climate models that we are using today.

BNP Paribas - APT: Climate Initiative

APT Acceleration of Permafrost Thaw by Snow-Vegetation Interactions : Global warming is causing the permafrost – areas of soil or rock that remain frozen all year round – to melt, unlocking the trapped carbon and releasing part of it in the form of CO2 and methane. Quite apart from the devastating effect this is likely to have on the local environment and the Inuit population, there might be considerable consequences for the entire planet. The APT Canadian-French team is planning to carry out a multi-year study of this process with the support of the BNP Paribas Foundation
