Expert review of IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land


The Expert Review of the First Order Draft of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on Climate Change and Land will take place from 11 June to 5 August 2018.

Expert Reviewers can now register online. Online registration will be open until 29 July 2018, 23.59 (CEST).

The Expert Review of the First Order Draft is a key element of the IPCC assessment process. Experts from around the world will offer comments and suggestions to the author teams. The report authors address every comment received when they prepare the next draft, and the review process aims to include the broadest possible scientific perspective.

We warmly encourage social scientists with expertise on the topics covered to register to participate in the review.

All IPCC reports go through multiple stages of formal review. This first review will be followed by a second review when governments will also be invited to provide feedback. Further information on the IPCC review process, and on the Special Report, can be found on the IPCC website.
