This week on Terra Informa, we look back at the past two weeks of climate change news with the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ’s most recent “Special Report,” which discusses the impacts of an increased mean global temperature of 1.5 degrees Celsius. We follow this with an archived interview with an IPCC working group co-chair from last March when we covered the panel’s cities and climate change conference here in Edmonton.

A Conversation with IPCC Co-Chair Debra Robertson

To provide us with some insight into the IPCC, how it works and what challenges the panel faces, this week we bring you an interview from March 2018 when we covered the IPCC conference on Cities and Climate Change. Terra Informer Dylan Hall speaks with Debra Roberts, Co-Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s second working group, titled ‘Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability’. The two discuss the IPCC as an organization, bridging science and practice, the importance of informality, and encouraging activism.
