Dr Julian Allwood
The authors for the next Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report (due 2014) have been announced. Dr Julian Allwood has been appointed as a Lead Author of the Chapter on Mitigation in Industry. Julian leads the Department's Low Carbon and Materials Processing research group, which explores a wide range of opportunities by which engineering can contribute to a low carbon future, particularly through reduced energy demand in industry. Commenting on the announcement Julian said "I am very pleased to be involved in something that has the potential to make a big difference, and it's a great opportunity to share our work with key leaders in this area."
You can access the complete author list of Working Group III - Mitigation of Climate Change and the outline of the 5th Assessment Report (AR5), as it was accepted at the 31st Session of the IPCC in October 2009 in Bali, at the following link: http://www.ipcc-wg3.de/news/ar5_authors
The Working Group III (WG III) of the IPCC focuses its work on the mitigation of climate change. The IPCC has the responsibility of providing policy makers with objective scientific and technical findings that are policy relevant but not policy prescriptive. The IPCC is aimed at serving as an honest broker between science and policy makers and other relevant stakeholders. The IPCC WG III assesses all relevant options for mitigating climate change through limiting or preventing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and enhancing activities that remove them from the atmosphere. WG III analyses the costs, benefits and risks of the different approaches to mitigation, considering also the available domestic instruments and policy measures as well as international arrangements.
