Dear Future Earth community,

Please share the following with your networks.

We are pleased to be able to share with you the Call for Lead Authors, Coordinating Lead Authors and Review Editors for the IPCC's 6th Assessment Report (AR6), as attached.  As an IPCC observer organisation, Future Earth invites nominations from experts from a range of scientific, technical and socio-economic views and backgrounds.

As always, the IPCC strives to include a mix of authors from different regions and from developed and developing countries and a balance of men and women, as well as between those experienced with working on IPCC reports and those new to the process.  Author nominations for AR6 are particularly encouraged from non-academic experts and practitioners and experts from the Global South.  Furthermore, as this assessment report aims to be more integrative across the Working Groups, people with a proven ability to operate across two or three of IPCC's Working Group areas are especially encouraged to apply.  Finally, as AR6 (particularly Working Groups 2 and 3) will focus more on human-social aspects of climate change, experts in the social sciences should feel encouraged to apply.

Have a look over the agreed chapter outlines for Working Group I, Working Group II and Working Group III for AR6 and submit your nomination suggestion to me by 23.59 CET 23 October 2017.  Nominations include a short CV (PDF format, strictly less than 4 pages) together with a completed form (see Working Group I, Working Group II or Working Group III for the relevant form).  I will then formally submit the suitable and complete nominations to IPCC before their submission deadline on 27 October 2017.

Please note that incomplete nominations cannot be processed.

Dear Kaela,
As far as I can see the WGII outline is missing (the WGI outline is attached twice). Or am I missing something?

Dear @Anne Snick, thank you for pointing out this error.  The link has been updated, thank you also to @Marie-France Loutre for providing the answer in the interim.

Dear @Marie-France Loutre, this is an excellent question and an oversight on our behalf.  We have updated the instructions to make this more clear, but basically you need to fill in a form (depending on which Working Group you are interested in - see Working Group I, Working Group II and Working Group III) and send that, along with a CV (pdf, less than 4 pages) to me.

Dear Amos Obi,

The deadline for nomination suggestions to Future Earth is the 23 October 2017, to give us time to process and submit the nominations to the IPCC by their deadline of 27 October 2017.  Although we may (depending on the workload) be able to accept nominations after 23 October, we can not guarantee they will be submitted in time for the IPCC deadline.

I suggest you submit your nomination suggestions to me by 23 October to guarantee that they will be processed in time.

All the best,
Kaela

Greetings all:

In looking over the outline of the working groups and in particular WG3, I have a major concern that education and engagement as a means to build capacity and bolster climate resilience is missing once again.

The original UNFCCC included in Article 6 a specific call for parties to develop education, training and related public engagement programmes as a way to help develop "adequate responses to climate change".  Since then, with a few exceptions, this call has failed to materialize, dispite the Doha Work Programme, the Ministerial Declatation at the end of Lima, two climate education manifestos being released at COP21, the attempt to rebrand Article 6 as "Action for Climate Empowerment", and language about education and public awareness being crucial for capacity-building in the Paris Agreement.

Consistently education and communication professionals/practioners have been missing from IPCC-related work, and other than occasional token efforts, education relating to causes, effects, risks and responses to climate change is ignored to mentioned only in passing.

My sense if the IPCC 1.5C report may include some focus on education/engagement as it relates to community knowledge and capacity building/resilience development, but we don't know for sure.....and won't for several years when the report is finalized.

Meanwhile, there is virtually no mention or even clear placeholder for where education and public engagement fit into the outline for WG3, even though there is a strong body of research connecting education, especially girls education, and reducing climate risks.

What can be done to bolster the case for climate literacy/science fluency as they relate to informed climate action and decisions, especially in WG3?  Or is it already too late to include education/literacy building, communication/information sharing and outreach/engagement as integral themes to countering climate confusion?

Hello Everyone,
The observation made by Mark is quite remarkable. Global climate actions by state and non-state entities can hardly succeed without Climate Education/Literacy. Climate education will enable groups and citizens in each country to appreciate the influence of their actions on the climate. This requires well-articulated awareness creation programs for different sectors in each country. Climate literacy can also be integrated into all levels of the education system in each country. Therefore, climate literacy should be a significant component of WG3.

Dear Mark and Chijioke,

I agree that climate education and engagement are important tools for mitigating climate change.  The third bullet point of Chapter 13 of WG3, "Building agreement - stakeholder engagement and public opinion formation, media roles, policy frames and normative change" does somewhat address this, although it is relatively weak and does not refer education at all.  The IPCC Working Groups, particularly WG3, should address this opportunity more thoroughly.

 

It is important to bring issues like this to the attention of the IPCC Working Groups as early as possible in the assessment cycle, so that they are able to address them going forward.  The chapter outlines were approved at the 46th Plenary Session, which took place 5-10 September in Montreal, and are fixed – we will not be able to change these.


Options going forward would be to:

  • develop a strategy to bring this to their attention at the 47th Plenary Session, which is due to happen in Paris in the first half of next year
  • reach out to SBSTA to bring it to their attention and see what, if anything, they are able to do
  • any other strategies or ideas you may have for further addressing this gap
Please let me know if you are interested in pursuing any of these courses of action, and we will happily work with you on realising them.


Best regards,

Yes, I am interested in pursuing all options and am grateful you better understand the process than I do.  I did send an email to the IPCC Secretariat, who I have applied to work with some years back-- most of staff is totall new and obviously they don't control the WG process exactly.  I agree-- this is weak but perhaps a place to start"Building agreement - stakeholder engagement and public opinion formation, media roles, policy frames and normative change".

If you can help us navigate the process that would be great. 

Also, I'm starting to see new concepts/keywords in the literature, like "community knowledge" and "Community Resilience Development Pathways".  In my view we need to be more exacting in what we mean by "community" or "local" or even "national," which I discuss in this post: From Person to Planet in Ten Easy Steps - Mark McCaffrey - Medium

From Person to Planet in Ten Easy Steps - Mark McCaffrey - Medium
There are ten orders of magnitude between the total number of people on the planet - close to 10 billion - and the single individual. Here, we apply the "powers of 10" to the number of people on the planet....starting with you, dear reader! Normally we use powers of ten to measure the size of things like time and space.
