Launch of IPCC WGI AR5 Full Report, Geneva

Location: Geneva, Switzerland

Date: 30 January 2014

Link: Geneva Environment Network

Invitation

This outreach event is the second in a series of events presenting the outcome of the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) to the Geneva Environment Network. It marks the finalisation of the IPCC WGI AR5 report for publication and the launch of the second phase of the WGI AR5 web site. Following copy editing, error correction to the Chapters and Technical Summary and layout for publication, the full report is now in press with the publisher, Cambridge University Press.

The WGI Co-Chair will present an overview of the WGI contribution to the AR5, reflecting on those topics that have generated most discussion since its approval and adoption by the IPCC at the end of September 2013. This event provides ample opportunity for questions and answers.

Presentations:

Thomas Stocker: Key messages and issues arising from the New IPCC Report

Gian-Kasper Plattner: WGI AR5 Atlas of climate projections and other regional information
