Economic and biophysical impacts on agriculture under 1.5 °C and 2 °C warming

The goal of limiting global mean warming to well below 2 °C, and possibly to 1.5 °C, emerged in the Paris Agreement, motivated by the belief that achieving these targets 'would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change'. Understanding the climate impacts of relatively low levels of warming, in particular whether there are substantial benefits to reducing emissions to limit warming to 1.5 °C rather than 2 °C, is important for informing climate policy, but such studies are scarce.
