Speakers
Inés CAMILLONI

Dr Ines Camilloni is a Lead Author of the chapter on Impacts of 1.5°C global warming on natural and human systems of the IPCC Special Report on Global warming of 1.5°C (SR15) and of the chapter on Near-term Climate Change: Projections and Predictability of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report. She is a Professor at the Department of Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences of the University of Buenos Aires and Senior Researcher of the Center for Atmosphere and Ocean Research (CIMA), jointly sponsored by the Argentina National Research Council (CONICET) and the University of Buenos Aires (UBA). She has participated, leaded or coordinated several recognized national and international research projects related with climate variability and change, and has authored several peer-reviewed scientific journal articles and book chapters. She was a member of the Argentinean team that developed the report on present and future climate trends in Argentina for the “3rd National Communication of Climate Change” and the related web-based dissemination of climate data and scenarios to support impact studies in Argentina.

Thelma Krug

Thelma Krug is the Director of the Department on Policies to Combat Deforestation of the Ministry of the Environment of Brazil. Thelma is a Senior researcher at the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) of the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communication since 1982. She holds a PhD on spatial statistics from the University of Sheffield, UK. She was the coordinator of Earth Observation at INPE, responsible for the official estimates of deforestation in Amazonia using remotely sensed data. For many years she has participated in the negotiating process under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on issues related mainly to forestry and reporting guidelines. She has several publications related to climate and forests, and has participated in the development of innovative methodologies for reforestation under the Clean Development Mechanism. From 2002 to 2015 she co-chaired the Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories of the IPCC and since October 2015 she is one of its Vice-Chairs.

Carlos Mendez

Carlos Méndez es el jefe del Laboratorio de Ecología de Ecosistemas y Cambio Global del Instituto Venezolano de Investigaciones Científicas (IVIC) y el Vicepresidente del Grupo de Trabajo II sobre Impactos, Adaptación y Vulnerabilidad al Cambio Climático del Panel Intergubernamental de Expertos sobre Cambio Climático (IPCC por sus siglas en inglés).

Maisa Rojas

Maisa Rojas is a Chilean climatologist and Associate Professor at the Geophysics Department, University of Chile. She studied physics at the University of Chile and has a PhD in Atmospheric Physics from Oxford University. Her two main research areas are: Paleoclimate and regional climate change. The common analysis tools are numerical climate models. Paleoclimate research is centred in understanding the evolution and dynamics of the climate system particularly in the Southern Hemisphere. Paleoclimate provides a broader context to understanding current anthropogenic climate change. Through the use of Regional Climate Modelling, she works on the assessment of climate change impacts on different sectors of society, including agriculture and water resources. She regularly participates in advisory panels for the development of public policies and was the Scientific Coordinator for the Min. of Science for the organization of COP25. Maisa is also a Coordinating Lead Author of the forthcoming IPCC report, AR6.

Carolina Vera

Dr Vera is a Vice-Chair of WGI of the IPCC. She is the Director of the Argentinean-French Institute for Climate Studies and its impacts, jointly sponsored by the University of Buenos Aires(UBA), Argentina National Council of Sciences (CONICET) and "Centre national de la recherche scientifique" (CNRS). She has been Deputy Dean of the School of Sciences of UBA and Director of the Center for Atmosphere and Ocean Research (CIMA)/ UBA- CONICET. She is Full Professor at the School of Sciences of UBA and CONICET Principal Researcher. Dr. Vera has long research experience on understanding, simulating and predicting climate variability and change. She has participated or coordinated many recognized international research projects and programs related with climate variability and change. She has authored several peer-reviewed scientific journal articles and book chapters.
