The climate of Switzerland is changing. The Swiss Climate Change Scenarios CH2011 provide a new assessment of how this climate may change over the 21st century. They are based on new generations of climate models with higher resolution, improved statistical methods, and an account of all recent relevant studies as well as the assessments by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
