The main aim of the congress is to provide a synthesis of existing and emerging scientific knowledge necessary in order to make intelligent societal decisions concerning application of mitigation and adaptation strategies in response to climate change.
The congress aims to identify and synthesize the science, technology and policy advances required in order to ensure sustainability of global communities in the current and coming decades.
The findings of the congress will be supplementary to the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The congress will provide a summary of existing scientific knowledge two years after the last IPCC report.
Output of the Congress
The congress takes place in the run-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP-15) in Copenhagen in November-December 2009. All findings will be compiled in a book on climate change, and an excecutive summary with the main findings will be handed over to policy makers at the COP15.
