OUTREACH

To publicize and disseminate findings of its reports to its key audiences, including the scientific and policymaker communities worldwide, IPCC produces outreach materials and organizes outreach activities such as events and presentations by IPCC representatives at various national and international meetings. This page contains information on these events, outreach materials produced by the IPCC and its partner organizations.


  • Highlights of the IPCC AR5 Working Groups' reports - Side event to the WMO Executive Council sixty-sixth session (EC-66)
        WMO Headquarter, Switzerland, 19 June 2014 

    The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) provides a clear and up to date view of the current state of scientific knowledge relevant to climate change. It consists of three Working Group (WG) reports and a Synthesis Report (SYR) which integrates and synthesizes material in the WG reports for policymakers. The SYR will be finalized on 31 October 2014. The WGs reports were released in 2013 and 2014 and will be presented at this side event.
