Global climate event in Denmark in 2014
Denmark will be welcoming 400 government representatives, scientists, experts and researchers, as well as a large number of journalists, when the UN climate panel puts its finishing touches on several years of work in autumn 2014.
Lead by Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, who will be coming to Denmark for the India Today conference in September 2012, the UN’s Intergovernment Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the world’s most serious and well-founded climate science panel that monitors the Earth’s climate state. The planet’s leading scientists and experts sit in the panel, which makes recommendations to the politicians.
Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Buildings, Martin Lidegaard, says he is proud that Denmark is to host the UN Climate Panel, when its long-awaited fifth main Assessment Report will be published in 2014. It will provide a comprehensive update of assessments of climate science.
In 2013 and 2014, three major reports will be published from the UN climate panel, which concludes with the summary report. At a meeting in Geneva in June 2012, it was decided that the summary report will be published in Denmark in 2014.
“The knowledge contained in the UN climate panel is incredibly solid. At national level we are already well underway with energy agreement. This autumn, the Danish Government presents a climate plan that shows how we can reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent in 2020. Thus, Denmark gives an ambitious contribution to keeping global temperature rise below two degrees, which is the UN’s goal,” says Martin Lidegaard.
The UN climate panel released their first major report in 1990.
