To mark the release of the Synthesis of the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), CCfCS and CISL are holding a discussion meeting about the report. Experts in each of the three IPCC working groups will present summaries of each working group report, and highlight the aspects that are most relevant and interesting to wider society, and across the working groups. We will then hear from David MacKay, former chief scientific adviser to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), who will give a perspective informed by his time working with the UK government.

This will be an ideal opportunity to learn more about the different working groups of the IPCC and to question the experts. The talks will be followed by an hour-long discussion session, which will be open to the floor. The aim is to stimulate new debate by bringing together panelists and audience members from across different sectors.
