Speaking truth to power: reflections on working with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
Climate change has been in the news of late: from devastating bushfires in northern New South Wales, to the traffic stopping activism of Extinction Rebellion and the worldwide protests of school children. 2020 will also be a pivotal year for governments’ action on climate change with the Paris Climate Agreement coming into effect and nations beginning to implement their “nationally determined contributions” to the global climate change response.
In this presentation, Professor Peel will reflect on working for the IPCC at a pivotal time for addressing climate change.
