Det danske IPCC-arbejde

Om dette site

FN's Klimapanel udgav i 2013-2014 sin femte hovedrapport om klimaforandringer. Synteserapporten blev offentliggjort d. 2. november 2014 ved et pressemøde i København. Panelet vælger i 2015 ny formand og nyt bureau som de næste år skal stå i spidsen for arbejdet med den sjette hovedrapport og et antal særrapporter. Dette site henvender sig primært til danske forskere, der kan bidrage til IPCC-rapporterne som forfattere eller reviewere.

Author Call: Special Report Ocean & Cryosphere

IPCC generelt og nyt Posted on 19 Apr, 2017 17:08:54

The IPCC is
inviting nominations of experts for consideration as Coordinating Lead Authors,
Lead authors, and Review Editors for the “Special Report on the Ocean and
Cryosphere in a Changing Climate”.

The outline
of the Special Report approved by the Panel at its 45th Session is available
at: https://www.ipcc.ch/meetings/session45/Decision_Outline_SR_Oceans.pdf.

A detailed
description of the IPCC writing and review process is contained in the
“Procedures for the Preparation, Review, Acceptance, Adoption, Approval and
Publication of IPCC Reports” which can be viewed on the IPCC website at: https://www.ipcc.ch/pdf/ipcc-principles/ipcc-principles-appendix-a-final.pdf.
The tasks and responsibilities for Coordinating Lead Authors, Lead Authors, and
Review Editors are specified in the Annex 1 to these procedures.

The task of
Coordinating Lead Authors and Lead Authors is a demanding one. They are
responsible in particular for drafting the different chapters of the Special
Report and thereafter revising those taking into account comments submitted
during the two IPCC-mandated reviews, namely the expert review and the second
review by governments and experts. A subgroup of authors will also contribute
to drafting, revising and finalizing the Summary for Policymakers (SPM) of this
Special Report.

The
Coordinating Lead Authors and Lead Authors will be expected to attend four Lead
Author meetings between 2017 and 2019 and possibly other chapter drafting
meetings. In order to reduce the amount of travel, most chapter drafting
meetings will be conducted through web conferences. The presence of
Coordinating Lead Authors and selected Lead Authors may be requested at
Sessions of the IPCC and its Working Groups during 2019 to assist in finalizing
the SPM. The time commitment of Review Editors is less than that for Lead
Authors but will include attendance at two Lead Authors meetings between 2017
and 2018.

The role of
the IPCC is to assess in a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent way
the scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant to
understanding the scientific basis of risk of human-induced climate change, its
potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation. Therefore, the IPCC
requires that the nominee(s) have appropriate expertise. All nominations should
indicate the Working Group(s), chapter(s) and author role(s) for which the
candidate is being nominated, a specification of the nominees’ key area of
expertise and be accompanied by a curriculum vitae and a list of relevant
publications.

Coordinating
Lead Authors, Lead Authors and Review Editors will be selected by the Working
Group I and II Bureau. The composition of the group of Coordinating Lead
Authors and Lead Authors for each chapter shall aim to reflect:

· The
range of scientific, technical and socio-economic views and expertise;

· Geographic
representation (ensuring appropriate representation of experts from developing
and developed countries and countries with economies in transition);

· A
mixture of experts with and without previous experience in IPCC

· Gender balance

Please
note, that there is no funding available for the activities. It is thus
important to have the full support of your employer for the extensive and prestigious
job, which is an excellent platform for building your international network and
increase visibility of your research.

Contact ipcc@dmi.dk if you wish to be nominated. Deadline May 10.

Forfatter til IPCC særrapport

IPCC generelt og nyt Posted on 15 Nov, 2016 18:28:46

FN’s Klimapanel (IPCC) er godt i gang med planlægningen af
arbejdet med udarbejdelsen af sin sjette hovedrapport og har netop udsendt kald
til nominering af forfattere til særrapporten om 1,5 °C global opvarmning.
Nomineringer skal ske via det nationale kontaktpunkt. IPCC’s Bureau vil
efterfølgende udpege et forfatterhold ud fra de indkomne nomineringer under
hensyntagen til ekspertiseområder, geografisk og kønsmæssig repræsentation samt
en balance mellem eksperter med og uden tidligere erfaring med IPCC.

Indholdsfortegnelsen til særrapporten om 1,5 °C global
opvarmning samt tidsplanen for udarbejdelsen kan ses på IPCC’s hjemmeside.

På IPCC’s facebook-side kan man se arbejdsgruppeformanden
Valérie Masson-Delmotte fortælle om hvad det indebærer at være IPCC-forfatter.

Som IPCC-forfatter vil man indgå i en af de tre
arbejdsgrupper, og for så vidt angår særrapporterne en tværgående gruppe. Der
vil være en del rejseaktivitet til forfattermøder. Se yderligere informationer
i brevet fra IPCC. Der ydes ikke støtte til aktiviteterne. Man skal derfor
sikre sig at have sin arbejdsgivers samtykke til det omfattende arbejde, der
dog også giver stor prestige, øger forskerens internationale netværk, og udgør
en god platform til at synliggøre sin forskning.

IPCC’s retningslinjer for udarbejdelse af rapporter og for
høringsprocesserne findes på IPCC’s hjemmeside og rollerne som Coordination
Lead Author, Lead Author og Review Editor er beskrevet i Annex 1.

Hvis du ønsker at blive forfatter på særrapporten om 1,5 °C
global opvarmning skal du fremsende en udfyldt nomineringsblanket (excel-skema)
samt et cv på max. 4 sider (pdf) til Tina Christensen på tic@dmi.dk senest
onsdag d. 7. december.

IPCC’s arbejde

Arbejdet i FN’s Klimapanel er uafhængigt af Klimakonventionen,
men samtidig helt centralt for Parisaftalen. Klimapanelets rapporter har altid
ligget som en solidt fundament under Klimakonventionen, og den femte
hovedrapport var et vigtigt indspil i udformningen af klimaaftalen fra COP21 i
Paris. Parisaftalen beskriver også hvorledes Klimapanelets arbejde skal spille
ind fremover. Aftalen opfordrer panelet til at udarbejde en rapport om 1,5 °C
global opvarmning. Denne særrapport vil spille direkte ind i konventionens
drøftelser af fremdriften mod overholdelse af 2-graders målsætningen. På samme
måde vil den kommende hovedrapport være et essentielt indspil i den første af
rækken af fem-årige evalueringer af indsatsen. De omfattende høringsprocedurer
og godkendelsesprocesser, som er en grundsten i Klimapanelets arbejde, sikrer
at rapporterne har en meget høj grad af integritet og autoritet, som er helt
essentiel for at kunne tjene klimakonventionens arbejde.

IPCC Kontaktpunkt i Danmark

Man er altid velkommen til at kontakte det nationale
kontaktpunkt til IPCC, Tina Christensen, DMI, med spørgsmål om IPCC og IPCC’s
procedurer generelt samt hvordan man bliver nomineret til IPCC’s forfatterhold
og hvad det indebærer.
