COP28 BMBF-Side Event: "Science for Action Evening"

The challenges facing ambitious climate action in times of multiple crises underline the importance of reliable and actionable information for science-based climate policy. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and its reports have played a prominent role in the discourse on international climate policy and implementation at national level over the last three decades.

The "Science for Action-Evening" is intended to provide a stage for scientific knowledge and the importance of the IPCC for climate negotiations.

In an interactive workshop format, the topics "Drivers, impacts and risks of climate change", "Measures to mitigate and adapt to climate change" and "Barriers and opportunities of transformative action" will be addressed. After short inputs by renowned experts, delegates, representatives of national and international politics and civil society are invited to discuss climate change research with the experts, including high-ranking IPCC experts such as IPCC Chair Jim Skea, Veronika Eyring, Matthias Garschagen, Oliver Geden, Hans-Otto Pörtner, Diana Reckien, Diana Ürge-Vorsatz and Harald Winkler.
