The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will hold a virtual press conference to present the Summary for Policymakers of the report Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability at 7:00 pm (Philippine time) on Monday, 28 February 2022. The tentative programme is available on the IPCC website.
The press conference will be streamed live on the IPCC YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/WGIIYTLive and on UN Web TV.
This latest report is the Working Group II (WG2) contribution to the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). While the Working Group I released last year focused on the physical science of climate change, WG2 focuses on the implications and potential future risks of climate change, as well as the options for adaptation and mitigation.

The OML Center, in collaboration with the Manila Observatory, National Resilience Council, and the UPLB Interdisciplinary Studies Center for Integrated Natural Resources and Environment Management (INREM), will also be holding an online stakeholders’ briefing on March 3 that features the three Filipino authors of the WG2 report: Dr. Rodel D. Lasco (OML Center), Dr. Juan M. Pulhin (UPLB-INREM) and Dr. Rosa T. Perez (Manila Observatory). The briefing will focus on the key findings of the report through the featured IPCC authors from the Philippines and their initial analysis on the implications for the Philippines.
