Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the world’s population. The broad, interdisciplinary approach that is taken at ETH Zurich gives it a soundly based, holistic perspective on the problem of climate change.
Its scientists are making a major contribution to a better understanding of the complex climate system. They use models to compute future developments in the climate and examine the ecological, social and economic effects of climate change. And finally, they are developing solutions for counteracting climate change and its consequences.
