IPCC Authors, RAND Experts to Present Update on Findings of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The Climate Resilience Center at the RAND Corporation will host a virtual event on Wednesday, March 2 to explore the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group II report that will have been released two days earlier.

The report assesses the latest science on the interdependence of climate, biodiversity, environment, and human societies, as well as the observed and projected risks from climate change, and local-to-global actions that can reduce climate risk and enhance resilience.
