Changes to IPCC WG II contribution to AR6 timeline

Posted by Martin Park on May 5, 2020

Dear ISIMIP community,

here, we would like to forward you some important information from the IPCC which has just released a press release highlighting the agreed changes to the WGII timeline.

Please find the press release here:

The most essential information is:

• Literature submission cut-off postponed from 1 July to 1 November 2020
• Expert and Government Review postponed from 7 August - 2 October 2020 to 4 December 2020 - 29 January 2021
• Fourth Lead Author Meeting postponed from 1-7 November 2020 to 1-7 March 2021 (dates to be confirmed in consultation with host and pending sufficient health and safety measures are in place to prevent infection)
Due to current situation the schedule may need to be adapted in the future.

Although, these are no pleasant circumstances at all, we hope that this will enable some more ISIMIP3-based contributions to AR6.

Take care and many greetings,
the ISIMIP organizational team
