GERICS and the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC

The IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC has a very special meaning for GERICS, as our director, Daniela Jacob, was a Coordinating Lead Author (CLA) for Chapter 3, together with one colleague from Jamaica and another from Australia. As such, Daniela, was the only German scientist who served as a CLA on the report.

Numerous members of staff at GERICS actively contributed to the preparation of this Special Report. In addition, a great deal of scientific information in the context of the report and with regard to a global warming of 1.5 °C has been processed, and many new GERICS products have been developed.
