IPCC-SBSTA Special event on WGI Report
Thursday, 4th November 2021

The special event of the SBSTA and the IPCC, organized by the chairs of the SBSTA and IPCC, to enhance understanding on the new scientific knowledge and key findings in the Working Group I contribution to the Sixth Assessment report: The Physical Science Basis. The event will aim to provide an opportunity for participants to have a direct exchange with IPCC experts on the new knowledge and key findings contained in the Working Group.

The summary for Policymakers (SPM) of the Working Group I (WGI) contribution to the Sixth Assessment report (AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was approved in plenary on 9 August 2021 which marked the finalization of the WGI contribution to AR6.

The WGI contribution represents the most up-to-date physical science understanding of the climate system and climate change, bringing together the latest advances in climate science, and combining multiple lines of evidence from paleoclimate, observations, process understanding, global and regional climate simulations. It shows how and why climate has changed to date, and the improved understanding of human influence on a wider range of climate characteristics, including extreme events. The AR6 reflects greater focus on regional information that can be used for climate risk assessments.
