Outreach of IPCC findings in developing countries: lessons learned
After the completion of IPCC's Third Assessment Report, Working Group III on Mitigation embarked upon an outreach programme to disseminate the IPCC assessments in developing countries and countries with economies in transition, in particular the Working Group III assessments on climate change mitigation, technology transfer and emissions scenarios. The report confirms the importance of such outreach activities in countries in which the reports are much less accessible than in OECD countries. The activities also provide experience to improve future reports by better addressing priority concerns and local characteristics in developing countries and economies in transition. Climate change being a global problem, this is a very important issue.
