Executive Summary 


Aleks Terauds (Australia)


In addition to the scientific advice co-ordinated by the SCAR Standing Committee on the Antarctic Treaty System (SC-ATS – see SDM 32 for details). SCAR also provides scientific advice to other bodies.

Since the last delegates meeting this has included advice to:

• Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) (Global Assessment Report led by Julian Gutt)

• EU – Polarnet (white paper on climate and cryosphere, led by Laura de Santis)

• Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) (SCAR scientists have and will will contribute as authors to IPCC AR6 and Special Reports (Cryosphere and Oceans, 1.5°C) [Naish, Mackintosh, DeConto, Golledge]

• National and local governments, large scale projects and other advisory bodies


Delegates are asked to note advice to other bodies expanding SCAR’s influence beyond the ATCMs.

Summary Budget 2017 to 2020

No budgetary implications as these activities are funded under other budget items (e.g., SCATS) or with external funds.
