Expert Review of the First Order Draft of the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC now open

24 September 2017: Review closes!

17 September 2017: Registration Deadline!

Experts from around the world are invited to provide scientific comments to the author team of the report: Global Warming of 1.5 °C: an IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. All IPCC reports go through two stages of formal review. The first draft is evaluated by Expert Reviewers, before a second draft is reviewed by both governments and experts for final assessment. This comprehensive review process ensures that IPCC reports cover the most up to date scientific, technical and socio-economic findings, and are representative of a broad range of independent expertise from developed and developing countries.

Expert Reviewers are invited to comment on the report to achieve a comprehensive, exhaustive, objective and transparent assessment of the available scientific literature. Contributions to the Expert Review are acknowledged once the report is finalized.
