At the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) a joint session was hosted by WCRP, IPCC, and Future Earth to discuss risks and consequences of breaching 1.5oC warming, and possible transformation pathways that can guide decision-makers and stakeholders. Five priority actions and/or challenges for our research community regarding the transition to a low carbon society and limiting warming to well below 2oC were identified:


We invite you to join us for the first WCRP Climate Research Forum for Southern Asia on 30 November 2021 at 9:00 UTC. We have some excellent speakers lined up on the themes of 'integrating societal needs for enabling science into action' and 'climate science challenges and priorities in the Southern Asia region.'
