Among other business, the group will elect a new chair, vice chairs, working group and task force bureau co-chairs, and working group vice-chairs. IIASA Deputy Director Nebojsa Nakicenovic is one of the candidates for IPCC chair, having been jointly nominated by Austria and Montenegro.

The IPCC plays a critical role in providing the best scientific knowledge on climate change through a unique process that includes 195 governments, which is reflected in the nomination of six excellent candidates, three from countries with membership in IIASA.

IIASA and the IPCC

IIASA’s pioneering research into climate change in the 1970s and 1980s played a key role in establishing the IPCC. Read more about IIASA's contribution to the field in the Options Magazine article, 40 Years' Research into Climate Change. Since then, numerous IIASA scientists have been authors and reviewers of the IPCC’s reports. IIASA’s approach of merging interdisciplinary and international research ensures its scientists are well experienced to provide expertise in understanding problems such as climate change that also crosses national and disciplinary boundaries.
