Highlights for Thursday, 10 April 2008

The IPCC completed its 28th session, held from 9-10 April 2008 in Budapest, Hungary, having agreed to prepare a Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) and to retain the current structure of its Working Groups. In order to enable significant use of new scenarios in the AR5, the Panel requested the Bureau of the Fifth Assessment cycle to ensure delivery of the Working Group I report by early 2013 and complete the other Working Group reports and the Synthesis Report at the earliest feasible date in 2014.

The Panel also adopted the Technical Paper on Climate Change and Water and agreed to the preparation of a Special Report on Renewable Energy, to be completed by 2010. It deferred discussion on the use of its Nobel Prize funds until IPCC-29, pending further consideration.

The next session of the IPCC is scheduled to take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 1–4 September 2008.
