BC3 researcher Sérgio H. Faria, participated in the start of IPCC in Guanghou, China


Sérgio H. Faria, researcher at the Basque Centre for Climate Change, is one of the four Spanish scientists that have participated in the Working Group I (WGI) First Lead Author Meeting (LAM1) in Guangzhou, China. This meeting marks the start of IPCC researchers’ joint work towards the completion of the WGI Report in 2021.

 

The main objective of the LAM1 was to create chapter/cross chapter breakouts and to develop a detailed plan for preparing a preliminary internal draft. This internal draft will be sent to a small group of reviewers selected by the WGI Bureau members, after consultation with chapter Coordinating Lead Authors. The results of this informal peer review will be considered at the Second Lead Author Meeting (LAM2) in January 2019, in Vancouver, Canada, for the preparation of the First Order Draft (FOD) of the report.

IPCC

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the leading international body for the assessment of climate change. It was established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of knowledge in climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic impacts. In the same year, the UN General Assembly endorsed the action by WMO and UNEP in jointly establishing the IPCC.

The IPCC reviews and assesses the most recent scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change. It does not conduct any research nor does it monitor climate related data or parameters.
