Central to IPCC framwork
In the mid-80s, SEI convened the Advisory Group on Greenhouse Gases (AGGG), a scientific body established by the United Nations Environment Programme and the World Meteorological Organisation, which served as a precursor to the IPCC.
Leading roles were played by SEI's Executive Director Gordon Goodman, and Professor Bert Bolin, who contributed to the establishment of SEI and became the first chairman of the IPCC.
- Bert Bolin set the framework for the IPCC and as chairman of the SEI´s Board he contributed to shaping the work of SEI. We see the Nobel Peace Price as an encouragement to continue our work on climate change and development, and to intensify our efforts to communicate our findings to those who can act on them, Rockström says.
Lead authors to Fourth Assessment Report
SEI has remained involved in the IPCC ever since. In this year´s Fourth Assessment Report, Richard Klein served as the coordinating lead author of the chapter “Inter-relationships between adaptation and mitigation."
Tom Downing and Anna Taylor served as lead author and contributor, respectively. Several SEI staff were involved in earlier reports as well, including Tariq Banuri who was a coordinating lead author on the third Assessment Report.
Another IPCC lead author is Neil Adger, at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, and affiliated with the Stockholm Resilience Centre. Neil was the Convening Lead Author for the Fourth Assessment Report of IPCC on adaptation to climate change.
