We’re bringing you another special briefing on the latest report yet from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), to be released on April 4, 2022. Working Group III focuses on both reducing greenhouse emissions and greenhouse gas removal and looks at required actions across many different sectors using a multi-disciplinary approach across economics and social science, extending to issues such as governance and social responsibility.

Join us on Thursday the 12th of April at 2:30pm AEST as Professor Will Steffen and Climate Council CEO Amanda McKenzie break down the findings from the latest IPCC report, and what it means for Australian local governments and communities.
