Details

Venue: meeting room Genf, World Conference Center Bonn, Germany

Date: 18 May 2016

Time: 15:00–18:00

 

Background

At its twenty-first meeting in Paris in December 2015, the Conference of the Parties (COP) requested the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) to provide advice on how the assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) can inform the global stocktake of the implementation of the Agreement and to report on this matter to the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA) at its second session (APA 2 will take place in November 2016 in Marrakesh, Morocco). The mandate can be found in decision 1/CP.21, paragraph 100.

In response to the request of the COP, the SBSTA Chair will organize the special event which will allow for an open exchange of views between Parties and IPCC representatives on how the IPCC assessments can inform the global stocktake.

General discussion and interventions from Parties

 

16:15-17:55 Guiding questions*
  • What are the information needs of the global stocktake that the IPCC can address, beyond the AR5?
  • How can the IPCC products to be published during the sixth assessment period be tailored to better support the global stocktake?
  • How will the IPCC input and the other input to the global stocktake be coordinated to ensure complementarity?
  • What modalities can we use to consider the IPCC input into the global stocktake? What experiences under the Convention can offer lessons in terms of modalities for considering the IPCC’s input?
