Keynote – What Works? IPCC evidence for understanding climate policy pathways and implementation

June 10 / 10:1510:35

Jim Skea is IPCC Chair for the seventh assessment cycle, Chair of Scotland’s Just Transition Commission and Professor of Sustainable Energy at the Imperial College London (UK).

Key messages:

  • IPCC is a unique science-policy interface. Progress in international policy is directly linked to the various assessments by the IPCC synthesizing the state of scientific knowledge.
  • Improving our solution-oriented knowledge is increasingly important for international climate negotiations and the global stocktake.
  • The solution-oriented knowledge around pathways to keeping warming well below 2ºC needs to be complemented with a sound understanding of what policies work, under what conditions in any way.

Followed by a panel on Towards solution-oriented IPCC assessments
