The Forty-Fifth Session of the IPCC (IPCC-45) is taking place from 28 to 31 March 2017 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

Among other business, the group will discuss the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), and the special IPCC reports that will be prepared in the next few years.

Yoshihide Wada, deputy director of the IIASA Water Program, who represents IIASA at this session, will significantly contribute to the discussion about the scope and content of the report. He will provide highest standard scientific input, particularly on the outline of the Special Report on climate change, oceans and the cryosphere and on the outline of the Special report on climate change, desertification land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems

The IPCC plays a critical role in providing the best scientific knowledge on climate change through a unique process that includes 195 governments, three with membership from IIASA. By contributing to this discussion, IIASA plays a crucial role in ensuring that highest standards are met.

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.
