Filippo Giorgi, head of the ICTP Physics of Weather and Climate group, has been elected one of six vice chairs of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group I. As a representative from the European region, Giorgi is one of approximately 30 scientists from around the world elected to the bureau. The IPCC is divided into three working groups. Working Group I is responsible for examining the scientific basis of climate change; Working Group II focuses on impacts of climate change and adaptation; and Working Group III concentrates on mitigation. IPCC publications are recognized as the world's most authoritative research reports on global climate change issues. The panel's efforts have received international attention and its findings have helped shape public policies and perceptions related to climate change issues. The next round of IPCC reports are scheduled to be published in 2007.
