About the PROVIDE climate risk dashboard

The PROVIDE climate risk dashboard is an interactive online tool providing detailed information on different future global warming scenarios and expected impacts on the climate, natural, and human systems. The data covers indicators related to: climate variables and extreme events as well as oceanic habitability around the globe, and urban heat stress at city level. More data on cryosphere loss, permafrost melt, agriculture, economic loss etc., is planned to be added later.

We also include state-of-the-art assessments of overshoot scenarios - in which average global temperatures would temporarily ‘overshoot’ the 1.5°C target of the Paris Agreement - before being brought back down again. Overshoot scenarios are prominent in the latest IPCC reports, but the specific risks inherent to them, including potentially irreversible impacts (such as species extinction), have so far been under-researched.

Users are able to set risk thresholds for heat stress in cities, for example, heatwaves or extremely high temperature levels that should be avoided, and then access information on the emissions scenarios under which the selected threshold can be avoided, or not.

We are co-developing the PROVIDE climate risk dashboard with stakeholders such as adaptation practitioners and the dashboard will eventually feature information on how it has been used for adaptation planning in various contexts to promote knowledge exchange.


The development of the PROVIDE dashboard was led by Climate Analytics, with contributions from the PROVIDE consortium.

About the PROVIDE project

The PROVIDE project aims to better understand and illustrate the potential environmental and economic impacts that would result from overshooting the 1.5°C temperature goal set out in the Paris Agreement, to better equip researchers and adaptation practitioners.

Moving beyond a limited set of climate scenarios, the PROVIDE approach will allow users to make impact thresholds the starting point for analysis and adaptation planning.

About Climate Analytics

Climate Analytics is a non-profit climate science and policy institute based in Berlin, Germany with offices in New York, USA, Lomé, Togo and Perth, Australia. It seeks to empower those most vulnerable – Small Island Developing States and Least Developed Countries – to use the best science and analysis available in the international climate negotiations, as well as in developing policies and institutional capacity to adapt to climate change. Climate Analytics undertakes extensive research on the 1.5°C temperature limit in the Paris Agreement, evaluates progress on climate action and shows governments how they can act on their policies to keep global warming to this limit.
