Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) ...

Great news for the Western Cape is that the IPCC's Working group (WG) II, 4th Lead Author (LA) meeting for the Fourth Assessment Report will be meeting in Cape Town from 11-14 September 2006. This will be an ideal opportunity to showcase the climate change related initiatives that make the Western Cape Provincial (Regional) Government a leader in the field.

The IPCC has three working groups
o Working Group I: The Science of Climate Change
o Working Group II: Impacts, adaptation and vulnerability
o Working Group III: Mitigation of climate change
o and a Task Force on Greenhouse Gas Inventories

I have just added a link under Climate Change Links in the sidebar to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This is an amazing site with comprehensive information about climate change as well as all the IPCC's documents including the 3rd Assessment Report 2001 and a variety of special reports.
