PC14C:
Key Findings of the IPCC Special Report on Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate: Challenges, Opportunities, and Future Scenarios I Posters

Session ID#: 84754

Session Description:
Following Governments’ requests, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is producing a Special Report on Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC) due for approval and release in September 2019. The SROCC is prepared by more than 100 international experts and includes six chapters: Framing and context of the report; High mountain areas; Polar regions; Sea level rise and implications for low lying islands, coasts and communities; Changing ocean, marine ecosystems and dependent communities; Extremes, abrupt changes and managing risks.

IPCC Special Reports address policy-relevant scientific issues and integrate knowledge across IPCC Working Groups. SROCC provides cross-cutting assessments of observed and projected changes in the ocean and the cryosphere and their feedbacks on the climate system, and of the impacts of such changes on ecosystems and human systems considering their vulnerabilities, exposures and the resulting risks. The report also addresses response options of human societies, e.g. options for adaptation and building resilience, as well as limits and trade-offs associated with such options. The SROCC assessment aims to support decision-makers through informing the design and implementation of appropriate policies and actions. 

In this session SROCC authors will present and discuss key outcomes of SROCC and its relevance for policy-makers.
