Lead Authors (LAs) discussing proposed changes to the text

On Monday, 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 Oceans and Climate Change (SROCC). Delegates met in morning, afternoon, evening and night sessions to discuss the SPM text and figures line-by-line. Informal huddles and convened throughout the day and night to discuss more difficult issues.
