GENEVA, Sept 20 – Following the press conference at 10.00 a.m. local time on Monday, 8 October 2018, in Incheon, Republic of Korea, to present the Summary for Policymakers of the Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 ºC of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), IPCC authors and officials will be available for interviews.

These interviews are expected to take place from 1.00 p.m. onwards Incheon time. Interviews with authors can be conducted at the conference centre where the press conference takes place or by phone or through a broadcast facility for those not attending the press conference in person.

Interviews can also be arranged with authors who are not in Incheon.

A list of IPCC experts available for interview can be found here. This list also indicates the country of the author, languages in which they can be interviewed, and their field of specialization.

Requests for interviews should be made on this form.

Please make sure you complete all the fields relevant to your interview so that we are able to process your request according to your needs.

The IPCC expects to receive more requests than can be accommodated. If your interview request cannot be met on Monday 8 October, there will be further opportunities in the following days and weeks. To accommodate as many interviews as possible on the day, the IPCC may also suggest an alternative interviewee, based on your needs specified when completing the form.

Please note that only interviews arranged via this process will be considered as confirmed. Any arrangements made directly with IPCC experts may be subject to cancelation.


The IPCC is planning to organize a broadcast facility in Incheon that will be available for use by broadcasters who are not present at the meeting.

You will be able to request both live and pre-recorded interviews. Broadcast requests should also be submitted through the online form.

Further details about these broadcast arrangements will be issued shortly.
