On Thursday 5 May 2011, approximately 60 participants attended a workshop at the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor in Wellington to hear from lead authors (from Australia and New Zealand) about the scope of the ‘Australasia' chapter for the upcoming Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report (AR5).
The IPCC is currently in the process of preparing its 5th Assessment Report. The report will undergo multiple international reviews and will be finalised in 2013/2014.
Chapter 25 of the report by Working Group II of the IPCC will focus on climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation options for Australia and New Zealand.
