With the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26 less than a month away, global headlines continue to reflect the impacts and risks of a changing climate. The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) makes it clear that climate change is caused by human activity and it is changing more quickly than previously thought. The report also highlights that it isn’t too late for world leaders to act. How will science serve world leaders as they gather for COP 26?
Join the Global Council for Science and the Environment (GCSE) and the Security and Sustainability Forum (SSF) for a cross-cutting discussion exploring the science informing the IPCC report and COP26.
