IP069: Mapping SCAR Affiliated Research to the CEP’s Climate Change Response Work Programme (CCRWP)

Submitted: 20/04/2017

Summary:

In response to a request from the Committee at CEP XIX, SCAR conducted a review of recent, current and developing research of relevance to the CEPs Climate Change Response Work Programme (CCRWP) over the 2016-17 intersessional period. Eighteen SCAR affiliated and subsidiary groups provided information on research that is aligned with the climate change related issues identified in the CCRWP. All main elements of the CCRWP were covered by SCAR affiliated research, ranging across most disciplines, including the physical, biological and social sciences. This overlap suggests that there is significant potential for SCAR groups to contribute substantially to key areas outlined in the CCRWP. Clear and timely communication between the CEP and SCAR on the priorities and objectives of the CCRWP will maximise the likelihood of this potential being realised to the fullest extent possible.
