For more than 50 years, research and innovation has helped us understand, tackle and mitigate the effects of climate change, and embed evidence in decision making and climate policy.

Here we look at some of UKRI and its councils’ most important contributions to tackling climate change. From early research that proved that global temperatures were rising, and investment in wind energy, to using supercomputers for climate modelling, our research is at the centre of numerous breakthroughs.
