Scientific Review Working Group

This CAN Working Group monitors the two fora where the First Periodical Review is discussed in the UNFCCC: the Joint Contact Group (JCG) and of the Structured Expert Dialogue (SED). Here, the Review assesses new science, especially the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) with the aim of examining whether the 2°C limit is still scientifically sound. The group also observes the IPCC meetings and leads the policy side of CAN’s engagement there.
