The structured expert dialogue - The 2013-2015 review
 

 
In 2012, the COP decided to establish a structured expert dialogue (SED) that aims to support the work of a Joint Contact Group of SBSTA and SBI and to ensure the scientific integrity of the review through a focused exchange of views, information and ideas.

Ensuring the scientific integrity of the review, the SED is an appropriate vehicle for open and substantive discussions between Parties on the scientific knowledge and evidence based climate policy formulation. It will consider scientific information relevant to the review through regular scientific workshops and expert meetings and will assist the preparation and consideration of synthesis reports on the review.

 
Previous meetings of the structured expert dialogue on the 2013-2015 review:
 

First meeting of the structured expert dialogue (SED1)
Second meeting of the structured expert dialogue (SED2)
Third meeting of the structured expert dialogue (SED3)

 
The fourth session of the structured expert dialogue on the 2013-2015 review (SED4)

The goal of SED 4-2 is to complete its work by addressing, in a balanced manner, all remaining inputs to the 2013-2015 review.  It will focus on non-Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) information sources identified in decision 2/CP.17, paragraph 161 (b-d). Pursuant to decision 1/CP.18, paragraphs 84, 86(b), and 89, the meeting will also address information that has been published after the cut off dates of the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) and identify information gaps.

First meeting of the fourth session of the structured expert dialogue on the 2013-2015 review (SED4-1)

Date: 2-3 December 2014
Venue: COP 20 venue, Lima, Peru


2 December 2014, 15:00-18:00, SED4-1  -  Part 1 

3 December 2014, 15:00-18:00, SED4-2  -  Part 2 

The goal of SED 4-1 is to make a contribution to the assessment of the adequacy of the long-term global goal and the overall progress made towards achieving it, to the extent possible, on the basis of the Synthesis Report of the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other sources of information.

SED 4-1 consisted of two parts that will consider the two themes of the review in a balanced manner. The first part (2 December 2014,
15.00–18.00) focused on the AR5 Synthesis Report. The second part (3 December, 15.00–18.00) focused on other sources of information.
