Recently, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the first part of its Sixth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis. A total of 14 Chinese experts and scholars in geoscience participated in the writing of the report. Professor Wang Wen of the College of Hydrology and Water Resources of Hohai University was one of the main authors of Chapter 12 “Climate Change Information for Regional Impact and for Risk Assessment” because of his outstanding research achievements in climate change and the impact of river basin water cycle.
Created by the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988, the IPCC aims to provide comprehensive assessments about the state of scientific, technical, socio-economic knowledge, influence factor, potential risks and coping strategy on climate change. Since its establishment in 1988, the IPCC has released assessment reports that directly promoted the process of international climate negotiations. These reports have become an important basis for the international community to deal with climate change and governments to formulate climate policies.
It is learned that after the release of the Sixth Assessment Report, Professor Wang Wen will introduce in detail to society and the public the latest scientific findings of the scientific report and the risk assessment of future climate change through various forms.
