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)
The 40th session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-40) will meet from 27-31 October at the Tivoli Conference Center in Copenhagen, Denmark, to consider and finalize the Synthesis Report (SYR), which integrates and synthesizes the findings from the three Working Group reports that comprise the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) for policymakers into a more concise document. The Panel will approve, line-by-line, the Summary for Policymakers (SPM) and adopt the draft SYR.

In addition to approving the SPM and adopting the SYR, IPCC-40 is also expected to address, inter alia: the IPCC programme and budget through 2017; admission of observer organizations; future work of the IPCC; communication and outreach activities; request for a technical report on climate change, food and agriculture; the IPCC Executive Committee’s report; implementation of the IPCC conflict of interest policy; a number of progress reports, including by the Task Force on Greenhouse Gas Inventories and preparations for the Expert Meeting on potential studies of the IPCC process; and matters related to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and other international bodies.

A press conference to present the SYR is expected to take place on 2 November at the Tivoli Conference Center, with participation from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, IPCC Chair Rajendra Pachauri and Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization Michel Jarraud, as well as report authors.

The third meeting of the Task Force on the Future Work of the IPCC will meet immediately prior to IPCC 40 on 26 October to consider, among other things, the refined Options Paper prepared by the Task Group Co-Chairs, which draws on submissions from governments, scientists, observer organizations, Technical Support Units and the Secretariat.

The AR5 has been under preparation for six years and consists of the SYR and contributions by the three working groups. The Panel adopted Working Group I’s contribution on the physical science basis of climate change in Stockholm, Sweden, in September 2013. The Panel adopted Working Group II’s contribution on climate change impacts, adaptation and vulnerability in March 2014 in Yokohama, Japan. Working Group III’s contribution on mitigation of climate change was adopted in April 2014 in Berlin, Germany.

IISD RS will produce daily web coverage, daily reports, and a summary and analysis from this conference. Kindly return to this site on Monday, 20 October 2014, for more information.
