Twenty-Ninth Session of the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and
Twentieth Anniversary of the IPCC

31 August - 4 September 2008 | Geneva, Switzerland
Highlights for Tuesday, 2 September 2008
Twentieth Anniversary of the IPCC celebrated!
On Tuesday morning the IPCC re-elected Rajendra Pachauri as IPCC Chair. Pachauri promised to make every effort to ensure IPCC progressed in an objective and transparent manner, and to conduct its business in the spirit of consensus and the highest standard of science.

The Panel also established a contact group to consider a proposal by the European Community to grant special observer status to regional economic integration organizations that are Parties to the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol. The contact group met twice throughout the day and agreed that the issue would be further considered at the next IPCC session.

In the afternoon, the Panel decided to establish a scholarship fund for young post-graduate or post-doctoral students in climate change sciences from developing countries with the funds of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
