On Monday 4 April, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its latest report on Mitigation. The report provides the world’s definitive assessment of trajectories, options and implications of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to limit global warming.

The report assesses global greenhouse gas emissions scenarios, opportunities to reduce emissions in all sectors and to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, experiences with emissions reduction action to date, and what can be done to achieve strong climate action. It also highlights the fundamental role mitigation plays in achieving global priorities like sustainable development and a range of other national objectives.

Below is a summary of events and media featuring ANU researchers involved with the report.



New IPCC Climate Change Mitigation Report: How can we limit global warming?

What options do we have to limit global warming to 1.5°C and well below 2°C, and are we on track to achieve this goal? At this event, several report authors discuss the key findings of the IPCC’s latest report on mitigation, including how they relate to Australia.
