Webinar 2: How to conduct an IPCC review

Future Climate for Africa (FCFA) invites interested individuals to attend a mini e-course on ’How to review IPCC Assessment Reports – webinars and guidance for climate experts’.
The objective of this mini e-course is to increase the involvement of experts from developing countries in the review process of the drafts of the IPCC 6th Assessment Reports with a view to enhancing both the scientific quality and policy relevance of the IPCC reports for stakeholders in developing countries. IPCC reports form the authoritative scientific basis for worldwide, national and local climate policymaking. Participating in this review process will increase your visibility in the global scientific community on climate change.
A similar mini e-course has been held successfully in 2018 by FCFA for African climate experts. This year, the course is open to climate experts from all developing countries. Thefocus will now be on the upcoming review of the first draft of the Working Group II report of the IPCC, entitled: ‘Climate Change 2021: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability’. The review period will run from 18 October to 13 December 2019.
We specifically encourage early career experts in the area of climate change impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability to register. The course will be delivered by distinguished international experts with extensive past involvement in the IPCC.
The course will consist of two 75 minute webinars, presented live on 15 and 22 October 2019. There will be the option of personal guidance by the presenters, intended for those individuals who wish to receive personal feedback and help with reviewing the report mentioned above. The webinars will explain how the IPCC works, how to judge texts and graphs, and how to produce effective review comments. The presentations will be recorded and later translated into French and Spanish.

In all cases (including if you would not follow this mini e-course yourself) we cordially invite you to distribute this announcement among your network partners involved in climate change and it’s policies. IPCC reports are relevant to governments, academia, private, NGO and public organisations.
