The IPCC Mitigation Assessment – key insights

10 May 2022 | Lectures & webinars

This event, held on 5th April the day after the publication of the IPCC Sixth Assessment of Climate Change Mitigation, offered an opportunity to learn about the key findings and debate the underlying analysis and implications, including the reactions from governments and others around the world.

Following the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment report on climate science, its report on Impacts and Adaptation in February 2022 underlined the rapidly growing impacts and likely consequences if climate change continues unchecked. Findings are presented by Professor Michael Grubb, Convening Lead Author of Chapter 1 of the IPCC report, followed by a panel of discussants, before opening up the floor to wider debate.
