Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. Working Group I of the IPCC is responsible for reporting on the physical science impacts and adaptations. This working group engages over 200 scientists from all parts of the world who need to collaborate to share research, expertise and come to agreement about the implications of the data. Throughout 2019-20 SHIFT has been privileged to support three Lead Author meetings by providing training and dialogue opportunities around strengthening diversity, inclusion, collaboration and participatory decision-making. Through this training and support, authors have reported a deepening culture of inclusion, and improvements in participatory mindsets and practices.
