The IPCC’s 1.5C Report: Critical opportunities for social science to shape the future

The IPCC’s 1.5C Report: Critical opportunities for social science to shape the future

WEBINAR hosted by the International Social Science Council’s Transformations to Sustainability programme.

31 October 2016 (16:00-17:00 CET) | Webinar

What are the impacts of warming at 1.5°C? What would 1.5°C warming mean for responding to climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty? And what kind of social science research is needed to help answer these questions?

Join Ioan Fazey, Bronwyn Hayward, Susi Moser, Petra Tschakert and other experts from the Transformations to Sustainability community for a webinar discussion on opportunities for social science in the forthcoming Special Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on the impacts of global warming 1.5°C.

This webinar is hosted by the International Social Science Council's Transformations to Sustainability programme.

It will include an overview of the latest thinking on the plans for the special report, including briefings on the key chapters with relevance for social sciences, and critical opportunities for social scientists to contribute to the report's development. Topics to be covered include the impacts of 1.5 °C, emissions pathways consistent with 1.5 °C warming, the potential for response options (mitigation and adaptation), approaches to implementing these response options, and meeting the 1.5 °C challenge in the context of Sustainable Development Goals.
