The IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C: Significance and Implications for Africa – Outreach Event

About the event

This outreach event is organized by the United Nations University Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA), the African Academy of Science (AAS) and the University of Ghana (UG). This is the first of series of sub-regional outreach events in Africa. It will focus on the key messages from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C (SR15) and the urban agenda and will also present the role and activities of the IPCC, its work programme and its relevance to policy and decision making in Africa. Valuable information will be provided about the other IPCC reports from the Sixth Assessment Cycle in the context of the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. The events will raise awareness about the process of development of the IPCC assessments and will explore the opportunities for the African scientific community to be involved and to contribute to the work of the IPCC. Through interactive workshop sessions, an effort will be made to boost two-way information flow and increase the African participation in the IPCC process and products.
