  • Date: December 10th, 2015
  • Language: English

The IPCC plays a key role within the climate change regime, synthesizing large volumes of climate change research and communicating the findings to policymakers. During the COP21 side event “The IPCC at a Crossroads: Opportunities to Reform“, co-organized by PIK, Harvard University and Stanford University in collaboration with FEEM, experts discussed problems and challenges that the IPCC faces beyond the 2015 Paris climate summit. The panel addresses two key questions: Is the IPCC doing the right things, and is the IPCC doing things right?
This video, produced by Peter Wood, Ph.D., and filmed/edited by Ben Crowe, contains interviews to: Ottmar Edenhofer (PIK), Charles Kolstad (Standford University) and Carlo Carraro (FEEM and IPCC).
