The IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C was released October 8th. The report is part of the IPCC's 6th assessment cycle. In this event we will put the report in a broader context and present its main findings. We will also discuss what the goal to limit global warming to 1.5 °C implies for the mitigation and the adaptation challenge.The event will take place at the venue but will also be available by webcast.
The session will consist of short presentations, followed by a panel discussion.
