Abstract

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carlo Carraro, Director of FEEM Climate Change and Sustainable Development program, has co-authored an article in the journal Science on the future of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC): "The IPCC at a Crossroads: Opportunities for Reform".

The article appeared online on October 2, 2015 and is based on research and analysis conducted in collaboration with Harvard Project on Climate Agreements (HPCA, USA), the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC; Germany), and the Stanford Environmental and Energy Policy Analysis Center (SEEPAC; USA).

Co-authors include: Robert Stavins, Harvard Project on Climate Agrements, HPCA; Ottmar Edenhofer, Director, MCC; Christian Flachsland, Head of the Governance Working Group, MCC; Charles Kolstad, Senior Fellow, SEEPAC and Professor of Economics, Stanford University; Robert Stowe, Harvard University.

The collaborators conducted a research workshop in February 2015, hosted by the Mercator Institute in Berlin, on approaches to improving the process by which research on climate change is assessed ­with a focus on the social sciences (economics, political science, policy studies). The Science article captures some of the more important conclusions of this workshop. (Read about the workshop here.)
 
The article is timely, given that the IPCC will hold a plenary session in Dubrovnik, Croatia, October 5-9, 2015, at which it will elect a new Chair (the most senior official within the IPCC).

Carlo Carraro, Direttore del programma di ricerca “Climate Change and Sustainable Development” della Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, è co-autore di un articolo sul futuro dell’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC - Comitato Intergovernativo sui Cambiamenti Climatici)  pubblicato sulla rivista Science.

L’articolo, intitolato "The IPCC at a Crossroads: Opportunities for Reform" è stato pubblicato online il 2 ottobre, 2015 e si basa sulla ricerca e l’analisi condotte in collaborazione con l’Harvard Project on Climate Agreements (HPCA, USA), il Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC; Germania), e lo Stanford Environmental and Energy Policy Analysis Center (SEEPAC; USA).

Gli altri autori sono: Robert Stavins, Harvard Project on Climate Agrements, HPCA; Ottmar Edenhofer, Director, MCC; Christian Flachsland, Head of the Governance Working Group, MCC; Charles Kolstad, Senior Fellow, SEEPAC and Professor of Economics, Stanford University; Robert Stowe, Harvard University.

Lo scorso febbraio, FEEM e gli altri centri di ricerca hanno organizzato un workshop, ospitato a Berlino dal Mercator Institute, per identificare una serie di proposte per migliorare il processo di valutazione del cambiamento climatico svolto dall’IPCC, focalizzandosi in particolare sulle scienze economiche e politiche. L’articolo di Science identifica alcune delle conclusioni più importanti del workshop. (Per leggere del workshop cliccare qui.)

L’articolo è quanto mai attuale, visto che il 5-9 ottobre prossimi, a Dubrovnik, in Croazia, si terrà una sessione plenaria dell’IPCC, in occasione della quale sarà eletto il nuovo Presidente.
