Regional Climate Information: Asia
Tuesday, 9th November 2021
The side-event will present the latest knowledge on climate change over Asia from the recently released WGI contribution to the IPCC AR6. It will provide an overview of the main changes that have been observed or are expected with further global climate change. Some additional findings for the main Asian subcontinental regions, its monsoon systems and high mountains will then be presented by IPCC authors involved in generating these. The first part of the event will then conclude with a presentation of the IPCC Interactive Atlas, demonstrating how it facilitates exploration of many of the datasets used in the main assessment and also the synthesis information on climate change over Asia presented in the Summary for Policymakers and the Technical summary.
The second part of the event will comprise five breakout groups, focusing on the main sub-continental regions (North Asia, South West Asia, East Asia, South Asia and South East Asia), which will facilitate interaction between WGI authors and participants, providing the opportunity to raise and respond to questions, and discuss other comments or concerns. Each will be led by at least two facilitators and a rapporteur from each group will report three key topics raised in the discussions back to plenary.
