SB58 Cryosphere Pre-sessional Technical Workshop
Friday 2 June 2023 - Friday 2 June 2023
: Bonn, Germany
Our Dr Helen Findlay, an acknowledged Polar Oceans expert, is an invited participant to the June Climate Change meeting of the UN, SB58, Pre-sessional Technical Workshop on the Cryosphere, 9AM-3PM Friday, June 2, at the Maritim Hotel in Bonn, Germany.
If the Cryosphere responds at lower temperatures, faster rates and more irreversibly than could be foreseen at the 2015 signing of the Paris Agreement, this has global implications for hard limits and planning on adaptation; financing of higher levels of loss and damage; and as a result, economically acceptable levels of mitigation, resulting peak temperature and CO2 levels (the latter determining polar and sub-polar ocean acidification). Nevertheless, updated inputs from the Cryosphere science community have been limited to single or occasional presentations at Research Dialogues or side events, without the opportunity for Parties to receive a complete and integrated look at the entirety of Cryosphere developments of relevance to the various UNFCCC negotiation tracks.
The Workshop will explore the policy connection, especially as regards the Global Stocktake but also tracks such as the Nairobi Work Programme and Loss and Damage, of the most recent developments in cryosphere science. These have critical implications for future negotiations and COP28, especially in relation to future sealevel rise, and impacts in mountain and mountain water-dependent nations.
