Organizers

The Task Group on Data Support for Climate Change Assessments (TG-Data) together with the Data Distribution Centre (DDC) facilitates the availability and consistent use of climate change-related data and scenarios in support of the implementation of the IPCC’s programme of work. In the context of these objectives, TG-Data together with WGIII have prepared the first formal outreach activity organized for AR6. This first package of outreach activities is linked to the outcomes of the WGIII report that was released in April 2022. Webinar material and technical support are provided by the International Institute for Applied System Analysis (IIASA), where the online database and Scenario Explorer are hosted.
