KIN Consultation meeting, feeding into IPCC’s Special Report on Climate Change and Cities

This April, the IPCC working group 2 (Impact, Adaptation and Vulnerability) will organize a scoping session for a special report on Climate Change and Cities. During this scoping session, the broad contours of the report will be decided. It is now known that Heleen de Coninck and Anne-Marie Hitipeuw-Gribnauw will represent the Netherlands in the IPCC scoping mission for the special report on climate change and cities in April. In the run-up to this event, KIN organises an expert-consultation meeting, feeding into IPCC scoping meeting. The Dutch delegation for the IPCC scoping meeting will be present during this event.


The goal of the consultation meeting

We want to give (urban) policy makers, NGO’s, researchers and other stakeholders the opportunity to convey which themes and policy-related questions they want to see addressed in the report, which dilemmas they face, and discuss which research and knowledge they seek to realize effective climate policy within their jurisdictions.

The KIN consultation meeting is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the Dutch input for the IPCC scoping meeting and ensure alignment with pressing policy-questions. Participants also get more detailed insight into the IPCC and its work processes, as well the chance to meet other relevant stakeholders. We strive for a diverse group of participants from various sectors in order to give a broad range of input towards the scoping meeting. Especially policy makers and practice experts are welcome. Later in 2024, the IPCC working group will be looking for authors and chapter scientists. They might use the expertise of this meeting as a sounding board.
