Last December fifty of the world’s leading experts on climate change and biodiversity took part in a workshop jointly organised by the IPCC and IPBES which focused on discussing opportunities to meet both climate change- and biodiversity-related goals.
A workshop report has been produced and will contribute to the scoping of the IPBES assessment of the interlinkages among biodiversity, water, food and health and feed into the IPCC AR6 Working Group and Synthesis Reports.
Journalists joined this briefing to hear from some of the scientists who participated in the IPBES-IPCC co-sponsored workshop as they presented the report and answered any questions.
