The first meeting of the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) -since it presented its Fifth Assessment Report- ended today in Nairobi (Kenya), reviewing its actions of the last year and half and establishing a route for its next report cycle that will start October 2015 with the election of a new table and a President for the expert panel.

The IPCC 41st working session pointed out the need to prepare more accessible reports, as well as the commitment to engage developing countries more closely in its woks.

“We have assessed our future, through a detailed process to examine how to continuously improve our job, so that it is as useful and as relevant as possible, not only for the government, the politicians, but for society in general”, stated Ismail El Gizouli, active Chairman, in a note.

Following this line, IPCC decided to increase the number of African and Asian countries’ representatives in the IPCC table, from 31 to 34 representatives in total.

Nairobi meeting also determined the need to continue preparing assessment reports every five to seven years, which would include regional aspects of climate change.
