Toronto, Ont. – Environmental Defence is attending the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) meeting starting today in Montreal. The IPCC is an international, scientific body that brings together hundreds of the world’s foremost experts on climate change.

At this meeting, IPCC scientists will discuss the latest scientific research on climate change, and decide whether future IPCC research will be scheduled to better inform how climate commitments under the Paris Agreement can be strengthened. They will also assess the progress of other ongoing research, including a special report on limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, the limit set in the Paris Agreement.
