Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The Centre for Climate Change Research (C3R) addresses one of the most pressing challenges facing society. The Centre focuses on understanding the impacts from climate change on our society and in developing adaptation and mitigation strategies to aid the United Nations' sustainable development goals. C3R is a unique initiative that crosses all academic Schools of Study at the University of Hertfordshire, and cuts across all research themes. It brings together nearly 50 academic and research staff, making C3R one of the largest research centres at the University.

The Centre adopts an ‘impact driven’ approach in all its activities. It exploits higher resolution projections to quantify regional impacts of climate change (e.g. of extreme weather and air pollution), identifies options for sustainable futures for cities and investigates the potential of new, zero polluting fuels and other low carbon technologies. Our research programmes add significant value to understanding the impact of climate change and identify solutions - be they technological or societal - for adapting and mitigating against the impact.

Our research areas and activities, include:

  • Monitoring Climate and its' Impacts (MCI)
  • Prediction of Climate and its' Impacts (PCI)
  • Climate and Urban Systems (CUS)
  • Societal Impacts and Transition (SIT)
  • Climate Mitigation Solutions (CMS).
