Thelma Krug, IPCC Vice-Chair and Chair of the Scientific Steering Committee for the 1.5°C Special Report, consulting with the Working Group Co-Chairs

On Tuesday, the forty-fourth session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-44) continued in Bangkok, Thailand. In the morning, discussions continued on the participation of developing countries in the Panel’s activities. Participants also heard a report on the IPCC’s carbon footprint, and discussed the review of the IPCC conflict of interest policy and the workshop on Climate Change and Cities.

In the afternoon, the Panel discussed the revised outline for the special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above preindustrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty. The IPCC also discussed the outline of the methodology reports to refine the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse (GHG) Gas Inventories, which the Panel agreed to dedicate to Jim Penman.
