IPCC will have a strong footprint at COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh


Geneva | The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will make a strong presence during the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) from November 7 to 18 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. The IPCC has been officially invited to provide scientific input to many of the UNFCCC’s major official events. On 8 November, Working Group 2 of the IPCC will state its findings relevant to the assessment of adaptation needs. On the same day, IPCC Working Groups 2 and 3 will present gender-related aspects of climate change as reflected in their contributions to the Sixth Assessment Report, a special subsidiary body for implementation and adjudicating body for scientific and technical advice events .

Scientists from Working Groups 1 and 2 of the IPCC will participate in the Earth Information Day on November 9. IPCC experts will also contribute to a series of roundtables and poster sessions for the 2nd Global StockTech Technical Dialogue, to be held from 7 to 11 November. Together with the UNFCCC Secretariat, the IPCC Taskforce on the National Greenhouse Gas Inventory will launch the new generation of IPCC Inventory software at an official side event on 9 November.

The IPCC will play a key coordinating role at an event hosted by the UNFCCC on 11 November, with multiple partners focusing on summarizing specific findings of the Sixth Assessment Report relevant to urban policy makers around the world. The IPCC will also run an event called Science for Climate Action with a rich program of scientific panels and events in collaboration with the World Meteorological Organization and other partners.

These live-streamed hybrid events will primarily address the key findings of two major IPCC reports released since the last COP; The Working Group 2 report on Vulnerabilities, Impacts and Adaptation released in February and the Working Group 3 Report on Climate Change Mitigation released in April.
