The Cambridge Centre for Climate Science (CCfCS) invites you to a special event on the IPCC 1.5C Report,  Tuesday 27 November 2018, 14:00 – 17:00 to be held at the British Antarctic Survey, in our Aurora Conference centre.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was invited to produce a special report in 2018 on the impacts of an increase in global mean surface temperature of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, covering both the climate impacts of a global 1.5°C warming and the emission targets required to meet this target. CCfCS has brought together an exciting pair of keynote speakers who will discuss this report from the perspective of the climate science and the climate policy angles.

Prof. Piers Forster from the University of Leeds and Dr Joanna Depledge, an Editor at the Climate Policy Journal will be speaking, followed by a panel discussion with Dr Emily Shuckburgh from British Antarctic Survey and Dr Pablo Salas (University of Cambridge).

Professor Forster is an author on numerous IPCC reports including the recent special report on Global Warming of 1.5C. Dr Depledge has an extensive background in international climate change politics, and global environmental negotiations. Dr Depledge has been following climate negotiations for the past 20 years.
