IPCC at UNFCCC COP24

Katowice (Poland)
2 Dec 2018 to 14 Dec 2018

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will be present at the Katowice Climate Change Conference (COP24) in Poland on 2-14 December 2018, with a broad programme of its own events as well as taking part in the official activities of the meeting. Co-Chairs of the three IPCC Working Groups will present the findings of the new IPCC report at a special event held with the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) entitled Unpacking the new scientific knowledge and key findings in the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC, on Tuesday 4 December at 15:00-18:00. The Co-Chairs of the Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories will hold a side event on the 2019 Refinement to the 2006 Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories, due to be released in May 2019, on Friday 7 December at 18:30-20:00. The IPCC will also hold a side event on climate science and policy, together with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and United Nations Environment Programme, on Wednesday 5 December at 13:15-14:45. IPCC Chair Hoesung Lee and the Co-Chairs will give a press conference on Thursday 6 December at 14:00-14:30 on the three IPCC reports to be issued in 2019. For the first time, the IPCC will have a pavilion (H3) at the climate conference, where it will present around 30 events showcasing the report on 1.5ºC, the Sixth Assessment Report work programme, and other IPCC activities. The pavilion is shared with the WMO.
