Geneva, Jul 26 (UNNews) – The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) opened a two-week meeting on Monday to examine and approve a report with the latest evidence on climate change.
This is the first part of your sixth assessment report and will provide the latest insights into global warming, showing how and why the climate has changed, and including a better understanding of human influence, as well as an analysis of extreme events, like the recent floods in central Europe, China and India and the heat wave in North America.
The Executive Director of the UN Environment Program, Msuya Joyce, hoped this will serve to stimulate “global action as we approach COP26” at the October climate summit in Glasgow.
“The pandemic is a warning from the planet that life can be much worse if we do not change. After years of promises, but not enough actions, it is a warning that we have to address this crisis that threatens our collective future, “he said.
