The 46th session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is taking place in Montreal this week.
From September 6 to 10, scientists from over 195 countries will gather to assess the IPCC’s sixth assessment report.
The report will provide state-of-the-art knowledge on climate change and will support the implementation of the Paris Agreement and Canada’s Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.
The IPCC will give policymakers scientific evidence to improve their understanding of the impact of climate change and future risks.
“Climate change is a global challenge that requires a global solution. Countries around the world are taking action to fight climate change and support clean growth, and our policies must be based on the best available science,” said Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, in a statement.
“As part of our government’s commitment to supporting science and taking a leadership role in tackling climate change, I am so proud that Canada is hosting climate scientists from 195 countries to share their research.”
