Read the interview with Professor Carlo Carraro, Strategic Advisor at the CMCC Foundation, on the latest IPCC Working Group III blog post. His research, the role of economics in the IPCC, and the challenges of meeting the long-term goal of the Paris Agreement
Sent out for comments from governments and other experts, the text is a work in progress which could change substantially and do not necessarily represent the IPCC’s final assessment of the state of knowledge. According to leaked IPCC drafts, we need unprecedented changes in energy use, industry and other sectors to limit global warming below 1.5°C
The reports will help governments understand the impact climate change is having on human activities and nature on land and sea and how human activity in these areas is affecting climate change. Both to be finalized in September 2019
Decided the strategy and timeline for next series of reports, the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), and the special reports that will be prepared in the next few years. Special attention to the impacts of climate change on cities and their unique adaptation and mitigation challenges and opportunities
Lee, aged 69, is professor in the economics of climate change, energy and sustainable development at Korea University’s Graduate School of Energy and Environment in the Republic of Korea.
Carlo Carraro co-authored an article in the journal Science on the future of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
Put aside any prophecy of doom and let’s talk about something that could be used as a resilience-enhancing strategy. Koko Warner, United Nations University, on migration in the face of climate change
It plays an influential role in the in the climate change policy process. But its operations are becoming unfit for purpose. Reasons and improvements to overcome the obstacles. From Carlo Carraro’s Blog
After years of stagnation in action on climate, something is happening. Suggested by Carlo Carraro, four reports help us to better understand what happened in the 2014 and what is to come in 2015
New targets for carbon emissions reductions by the United States and a first-ever commitment by China to peak emissions by 2030. New perspectives on mitigation and the IPCC scenarios (video)
Climate science as you have never seen before. Video, animations, pictures, in-depth analysis: because climate is changing for everyone, not only for scientists. www.clima2014.it
Policies, technologies and strategies: what our societies can do to cut greenhouse gases emissions and meet the 2°C target. The Italian authors speak about the Report. Watch the video.
Mitigation of Climate Change. The Summary for Policy Makers (SPM) of the Fifth Assessment Report on Climate Change – WGIII released in Berlin. Documents and materials by the IPCC
The Italian authors of the Report explain the impacts, the vulnerabilities and the opportunities for effective action to address risks and capitalize on future climate benefits
