Highlights for Wednesday, 25 February 2020
IPCC-52 discussions on the proposed outline of the Synthesis Report (SYR) of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) took place throughout the day on Wednesday, 26 February. Following some procedural discussions to ensure clarity on the process going forward, delegates engaged in what many deemed a productive session in which views and suggestions were expressed on all the sections of the SYR outline. Based on these comments, the IPCC Vice-Chairs will revise the outline and present another version for consideration by delegates on Thursday.The Panel also addressed: the organization of a joint workshop with the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) to be held from 12-14 May 2020 in London, UK; and the organization of future IPCC work in light of the UNFCCC Global Stocktake, with views diverging on whether to align the two processes going forward.
IISD Reporting Services, through its Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) Meeting Coverage, has provided daily web updates and a summary and analysis report from IPCC-52. The summary and analysis report is now available in HTML and PDF.
