Tipping points on soil erosion in the global south

24 April 2024. Webinar on tipping points on soil erosion in the global south

This webinar delved into the critical tipping points in soil erosion and their implications, particularly in regions of the global south where the impacts are currently most pronounced.

The Tipping points discussion series supports efforts to increase consistency in of tipping elements in the scientific community, develop a research agenda, and design joint experiments and ideas for a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project (TipMip).

It is a joint activity of the Analysis, Integration, and Modeling of the Earth System (AIMES) global research project of Future Earth, the Earth Commission Working Group 1 Earth and Human Systems Intercomparison Modelling Project (EHSMIP) under the Global Commons Alliance, and the Safe Landing Climates Light House Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP). IIASA co-hosts the scientific secretariat of Working Group 1 of the Earth Commission and is one of the organizers of
these events.
