Delegates congratulate Hoesung Lee, Republic of Korea, on his election as the new IPCC Chair

On Tuesday, 6 October, the 42nd Session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-42) continued in Dubrovnik, Croatia. In the morning an informal session organized by the candidates for IPCC Chair convened to provide a forum for them to discuss their respective platforms. Regional consultations and sessions of both the Nominations and Credentials Committees took place.

In the afternoon, delegates tested the electronic voting system and decided to revert to a paper balloting system. In the evening, voting for the IPCC Chair commenced. The IPCC elected Hoesung Lee, Republic of Korea, as Chair. The IPCC then took up agenda items on implementation of the IPCC Error Protocol, and matters related to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and other bodies.
