The eighth session of Working Group III (WGIII-8) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) opens today in Montreal, Canada, to continue its deliberations on the Special Report on Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage (Special Report).

After presentations on aspects of the Special Report, delegates will consider approval of a summary of the Special Report for policymakers and of the scientific and technical assessment underlying the Special Report.

WGIII-8 will be followed by the twenty-fourth session of the IPCC (IPCC-24). IPCC-24 will meet from September 26 – 28, 2005. Delegates will discuss: the IPCC-23 draft report; the IPCC programme and budget for 2006-8; the actions of WGIII-8 regarding the Special Report on Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage; further work on aerosols and on emissions scenarios; outreach activities; and election procedures. Delegates will also hear progress reports on: the activities of the three Working Groups; management of the Synthesis Report of the Fourth Assessment Report; the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories; and the work of the Task Group on Data and Scenario Support for Impact and Climate Analysis.
