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 nytPosted by Tina Christensen 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 nytPosted by Tina Christensen 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.
