The 50th session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC 50) will convene in August 2019. The Panel is expected to approve the Special Report on Climate Change and Land (SRCCL), which addresses climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management (SLM), food security and greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems. The SRCCL is the second of three special reports produced by the Panel in its sixth assessment cycle. The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C (SR15) was released in October 2018, and the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC) is expected to come out later this year.
In addition to the three special reports, the Panel’s products during the sixth assessment cycle include the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) and a Methodology Report to refine the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventories.
