Fortieth session of the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-40)

27-31 October 2014 | Copenhagen, Denmark

Daily Web Coverage (Click on the Following Links to See Our Daily Webpages)
Highlights for Monday, 27 October 2014
The 40th session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-40) opened at the Tivoli Conference Center in Copenhagen, Denmark, to consider and finalize the Synthesis Report (SYR), which integrates the findings from the three working group reports that together comprise the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). During the session, the Panel is expected to approve, line by line, the Summary for Policymakers (SPM) and adopt the longer SYR section by section.

The opening session heard statements by: Rasmus Helveg Petersen, Minister for Climate, Energy and Building, Denmark; Kirsten Brosbøl, Minister for the Environment, Denmark; Frank Jensen, Lord Mayor of Copenhagen; Jeremiah Lengoasa, WMO Deputy Secretary-General; John Christensen, on behalf of UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner; and, via video, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres. In his opening statement, Chair Rajendra Pachauri asked policymakers to “avoid being overcome by the seeming hopelessness of addressing climate change.” Participants then began to discuss the SPM, addressing the introduction and the section on observed changes and their causes.

In the evening, a reception was hosted by the Minister for Climate, Energy and Building and the Lord Mayor of Copenhagen.

Around the City
Twelve enormous blocks of ice weighing 100 tonnes are left by the artist Olafur Eliasson to melt in Copenhagen’s City Hall Square as a visual representation of the reality of climate change. The ice, collected from a fjord outside Nuuk, Greenland, is intended to be a physical wake-up call to encourage people to transform climate knowledge into climate action.
