Call for nominations of experts for the IPCC Task Group on Data Support for Climate Change Assessments

This is a call for nominations of Canadian experts to serve on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Task Group on Data Support for Climate Change Assessments (TG-Data). Nominations are being solicited for experts to serve as TG-Data Co-Chairs as well as members of the Task Group.

 The purpose of TG-Data is to facilitate the availability and use of climate change-related data and scenarios in support of the work programme of the IPCC, and to provide curation, transparency, traceability and stability of data and scenarios related to the reports of the IPCC.

At the 47th Session of the IPCC (March 2018), the IPCC re-named the Task Group on Data and Scenario Support for Impact and Climate Analysis (TGICA) to the Task Group on Data Support for Climate Change Assessments (TG-Data), and adopted new Terms of Reference (TORs) for the TG-Data and guidance for the IPCC Data Distribution Centre (DDC). The TORs are attached for reference.

Application Instructions:
Please submit the attached nomination form (below) and a Curriculum Vitae to the IPCC Secretariat for Canada (ec.giec-ipcc.ec@canada.ca) by July 17, 2018. Members of the TG-Data will be selected by the IPCC Bureau and will be notified directly by the IPCC.

Please do not hesitate to contact the IPCC Secretariat for Canada if you have any questions.
