Working visit of the Vice-President of IPCC to CDER

The Prof. Hoesung Lee, Vice-President of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change-IPCC and futur candidate for the chairmanship of IPCC, made a working visit to the Renewable Energy Development Center (CDER) today the 11 August 2015. Accompanied by his Excellency Sir Park Sang-jin, Embassador of the Republic of Corea in Algeria, by Sir Choi Hanchang, Assistant Director of the Cliamte and Air Quality Policy division at the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Corea and by a delegation from the embassy of the Republic of Corea in Algeria. Prof.Hoesung Lee has been received by Prof. Noureddine Yassaa, Director of the CDER and Focal Point of IPCC in Algeria. The Corean candidate for the chairmanship of the IPCC exposed his own vision and his programme wether he would be ellected for the position of chairman of IPCC in coming October at the IPCC’s offices besides the 42nd session of IPCC.

Prof. Yassaa raised some issues which must be handled by the futur office of the IPCC, among them : involve scientists from developping countries in into writing the different repports of the IPCC , the repports have not to be just an abstract of scientific releases in english, they must be enlarged to other articles, repports and others written in other UN official langages, simplify the writing of the consolidated reports meant for politicians in order to make them more understundable by implying communication specialists to avoid them being too much technical, raise unsufficeincies in term of lack of data in developping countries because of the unvailability of observation means and research infrastructures equiped with heavy measurment equipments, ensure more information on the IPCC’s activities by multuiplicating thematic workshops in developping countries, contribute in the development of the potential of the futur generation of authors of the IPCC, understanding throughout the IPCC scholarships programme, elaborate a special report about the desertification issue because of climate change, handle the questions on the mitigation and the adaptation in an equal way and reinforce the connexion between the three working group (WGI, WGII, WGIII), assure the political nutrality of the reports, engage discussions with state members along the elaboration of the reports not only the consolidated report, by guaranteeing a more important transparency and independence and basing only on sceintific rigour, involve scientific from developping countries in the activities of the Technical Support Units (TSU) of the IPCC, ensuring a good geographical presentation, promote colaborations between the IPCC and institutions, organisations and scientific academies working in the field of climate change in each country.

For reminder the IPCC was created in 1988 by two bodies of the UN: the world meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to supply detailed evaluations of the state of the scientific, technical and socioeconomic knowledge on climate change, their causes, their potential repercussions and the response strategies. Since then, the IPCC established five assessment reports multivolumes. The last one or the fifth assessement report ( RE5) was adopted by all the states member (members also in the WMO) in November, 2014. The next report will be prepared during period 2015-2022 ( 6 - 7 years). The IPCC and the Ex-vice-president of the United States of America, Al Gore, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for their contribution in the field of climate change. The IPCC has not for rôle to undertake research works or to follow the evolution of climatological variants or other pertinent parameters. These assessments are mainly based on scientific and technical publications the scientific value of which is largely recognized.

The official publications of the IPCC aim to propose a synthesis of scientific knowledges. These reports are the result of a long debate that ended with a consensus : the approval for the final version of the report by all scientists and governments part of the IPCC ( the major part of countries are represented and signed the approval for the final version, including USA). Therefore, the credibility of the IPCC depends on the quality of the expertise process, which could be assessed by different ways : diversity of disciplines and approaches, diversity of interests etc. if the IPCC suffered from its credibility, at first, it was a criticism coming from developping countries estimated that they were not enaugh represented in that process.

Finally, it is essential to note that during the 41st session (before the election session of the futur IPCC office) of the IPCC that held the 24 to 27 February 2015 at the headquarter of the United Nations Environment Programme, Nairobi, Kenya, the number of seats in the IPCC office is gone from 31 to 34 seats spre ad as following : 7 (plus 2) chaires for Africa (Region I), 6 (plus 1) seats for Asia (Region II), 4 seats for Southern America (Region III), 4 seats for Northern America (Region IV), 4 seats for South-eastern Pacific (Region V), and 8 seats for Europe (Region VI). The decision of adding to more seats for Africa has been greeted by all the African counries, it will allow the African experts to be strongly represented in the High Court of the IPCC and to thus actively contribute in its futur activities.
