Virtual Knowledge Sharing Dialogue on Climate Change on 4 December

The upcoming 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28), 30 November – 12 December in Dubai, is an important moment in the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement. It will be the time for the Global Stocktake, the review of progress made and efforts still to be made, with political recommendations for the way forward.

The UN climate change process significantly relies on science and systematic observations. The global scientific community of the International Science Council plays a pivotal role in the development of climate science at the international level and in informing international policy processes. Over sixty years, together with other international organisations, the ISC co-sponsored a number of science initiatives, programmes, scientific committees and observing systems, known as Affiliated Bodies, that generated critical knowledge on climate change and created an increasingly comprehensive understanding of the Earth system.

About the Dialogue

During the COP 28, the ISC will organize a virtual Knowledge Sharing Dialogue that will bring together several leading climate programmes to share the latest developments in climate science, to present their flagship activities, to discuss the opportunities for engagement as well as to outline the critical needs for sustaining successful scientific collaboration on climate change at the international level.
