The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will be taking part in the Bonn Climate Conference or the 56th session of the Subsidiary Bodies of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) from 6 to 16 June 2022.

The IPCC Secretary Abdallah Mokssit will deliver a statement on behalf of the IPCC at the opening of the 56th Session of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) on 6 June. From 14.00 pm that afternoon, the Co-Chairs, and authors of the IPCC Working Group II will be presenting the findings from the report Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability at a SBSTA-IPCC special event. On 8 June 2022, the IPCC Working Group III Co-Chairs and authors will present the findings from the report Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of Climate Change at a similar event. Both special events will be opened by the Chair of the IPCC Hoesung Lee.

On the morning of 7 June, IPCC experts will be presenting and taking part in an event on the Global Goal on Adaptation. From 16.00 on 7 and 8 June, IPCC will participate in the Structured Expert Dialogue, where the findings of the Working Group II and III contributions to the Sixth Assessment Report will be the main input to the discussions.

At 11.30 am on 8 June, the IPCC Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI) will hold a side event with UNFCCC on The Next Generation of the IPCC Inventory Software: A key tool to support the Enhanced Transparency Framework Implementation under the Paris Agreement.

Experts of the three IPCC Working Groups that developed the latest Sixth Assessment Report trilogy (the Physical Science Basis, Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability and Mitigation of Climate Change) will provide input to the Research Dialogue on 9 June.

From the afternoon of 9 June till 14 June, the UNFCCC will host the very first Technical Dialogue on the Global Stocktake. The Global Stocktake is a process where the world’s governments would periodically take stock of the implementation of the Paris Agreement to assess their collective progress towards achieving the purpose of the Agreement and its long-term goals. The IPCC Chair will provide opening remarks and IPCC Co-Chairs and experts will be taking part in the various round tables over the duration of the Technical Dialogue.

IPCC experts will also be taking part in various other side events and activities. The TFI will have a dedicated space providing an opportunity to learn about its activities, in particular the new generation of inventory software, and the work of the IPCC in general.
