On Sunday, the second Joint Session of IPCC Working Groups (WGs) I and II continued consideration of the Summary for Policymakers (SPM) of the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC). Delegates met in morning, afternoon, evening and night sessions to discuss specific paragraphs in sections on, among others, observed changes and impacts and projected changes and risks. They also addressed relevant figures in the text. Informal huddles convened throughout the day to discuss issues requiring further discussion.

IISD Reporting Services, through its ENB Meeting Coverage, provided daily web coverage and a summary and analysis from IPCC-51.
