Delegates took crucial decisions on its work plan for seventh assessment cycle, including on the products and timelines for its outputs. Deliberations illuminated diverging views and priorities, and what might have been a straightforward agenda setting exercise evolved into fraught deliberations that ran all night Friday and well into Saturday morning.
As the world contends with raging wildfires, floods, droughts and record-breaking temperatures, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) initiated its seventh assessment cycle by electing the leaders who will guide the Panel’s work in providing timely information to support policymakers as they confront a rapidly changing environment.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report is a clarion call to the world: the time for serious action on climate change is now, before it’s too late. The adoption of the Synthesis Report and its Summary for Policymakers marks the end of the sixth assessment cycle and raises questions about how the next assessment cycle should proceed.
With the publication of Synthesis Report from the sixth assessment cycle delayed until March 2023, delegates at IPCC-57 focused on the need to prepare for a smooth transition to the seventh assessment cycle, to ensure the Panel remains relevant and continues to provide much needed scientific guidance to advance ambitious climate action.
With greenhouse gas emissions at their highest ever and rising, delegates and authors worked overtime to finalize the Summary for Policymakers, which presents the key findings of their report, “Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of Climate Change.”
As a summary of impacts across both human and natural systems, the latest IPCC report, “Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability,” recounts widespread losses and damages to nature and people.
The first Working Group contributed to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report providing a comprehensive assessment of the physical science underpinning past, present and future climate change.
Delegates sought to advance the intergovernmental process around the IPCC’s influential climate change reports despite the pandemic, the virtual setting, and simmering tensions.
During the week-long meeting, participants agreed on an outline for the Synthesis Report of the Sixth Assessment Report, engaged in detailed consideration of the organization of future work in light of the Global Stocktake (GST) under the Paris Agreement, and also adopted the Gender Policy and Implementation Plan.
The Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC) has some alarming messages in its assessment of the latest scientific knowledge about the physical science basis for, and impacts of, climate change on ocean, coastal, polar, and mountain ecosystems, and the human communities that depend on them. It also evaluates their vulnerabilities and adaptation capacity, as well as options for achieving climate-resilient development pathways.
