Gli autori dell’IPCC Working Group III si incontrano virtualmente per lavorare al report
Gli esperti IPCC si incontreranno online dal 19 al 23 aprile 2021 per continuare il lavoro sul contributo del Working Group III al Sesto Rapporto di Valutazione, che analizzerà la mitigazione dei cambiamenti climatici. Il meeting sarà organizzato dal Governo italiano, e vedrà la partecipazione di 280 esperti provenienti da 70 paesi.
La bozza finale del report sarà circolata ai governi più in là nel 2021 per i loro commenti sul Sommario per Policymakers. Il Panel IPCC valuterà i contributi del WG3 all’AR6 ad una sessione plenaria a inizio 2022, anche se le date rimangono soggette a revisione alla luce delle incertezze causate dalla pandemia di COVID-19.

GENEVA, April 12 – Experts from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will meet virtually from 19 to 23 April 2021 to continue their work on the Working Group III contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report, which assesses the mitigation of climate change.
The meeting, hosted by the Government of Italy, will draw together 280 experts from around 70 countries as they start to prepare the final draft of the report and second draft of the Summary for Policymakers.
“Despite the ongoing pandemic, we have made a lot of progress since our third Lead Author Meeting, the IPCC’s first virtual Lead Author Meeting, in 2020,” said Working Group III Co-Chair Jim Skea.
“Our authors went the extra mile to deliver the Second-Order Draft, which received over 30,000 comments from more than 850 government and expert reviewers. This upcoming meeting will give them the opportunity to take stock of this vital feedback and persist in their preparation of a relevant and thorough final draft,” he said.
IPCC Working Group III is responsible for assessing the mitigation of climate change – responses and solutions to the threat of dangerous climate change by reducing emissions and enhancing sinks of the greenhouse gases that are responsible for global warming.
“We would like to thank the many reviewers of the Second-Order Draft, who reflect both the significance of this report and the interest in it from many sectors and aspects of society,” said Working Group III Co-Chair Priyadarshi Shukla.
“We would also like to thank the Government of Italy for its support during this virtual meeting and engagement with the associated outreach activities, which hold importance not only for Working Group III, but also a broader global audience,” he said.
The Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) will assess mitigation options in sectors such as energy, agriculture, forestry and land use, buildings, transport and industry, and consider these in the context of sustainable development. For the first time, it will examine the link between greenhouse gas emissions and themes such as consumption and behaviour, and the role of innovation and technology.
The report will also assess the connection between short to medium-term actions and long-term emission pathways that will limit global warming.
The final draft of the report will be circulated to governments later in 2021 for their comments on the Summary for Policymakers. The IPCC Panel is currently due to consider the Working Group III contribution to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report at a plenary session in early 2022, although dates remain subject to revision because of the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Virtual outreach event (open to the public)
A virtual outreach event will be held by the RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) in partnership with IPCC Working Group III, and with the support of the Ministry of Ecological Transition, Government of Italy.
‘Climate change and our future – driving the transition’
14:00-16:00 BST/15:00-17:00 CEST on Wednesday 28 April.
This interactive online event will provide members of the public with the opportunity to engage with scientific experts, young leaders and artists, and government representatives in the midst of an official IPCC meeting on the topic of climate change.
The event will include two parts:
- Science and Policy: strategies, solutions, opportunities
- Ambition: the climate, the future, and the young generations
A Q&A will allow guests to submit their own questions to the panel/speakers, and we are pleased to announce the following guests and speakers:
- Kim Stanley Robinson, Science Fiction writer, Author of Ministry for the Future (2020)
