Scoping Meeting for the IPCC AR5 Synthesis Report

The intent of this meeting is to scope out the contents of the Synthesis Report for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). The scoping of the Synthesis Report for the AR5 was first considered in Venice, Italy, at the AR5 Scoping Meeting, held from 13-17 July 2009. It recommended that the Synthesis Report be organized around four major topic areas: Observed Changes and their Causes; Future Changes (in the short and long-term); Response; and Transitions and Transformation. Please note that attendance at the scoping meeting is by invitation only.
