Science community at COP27
Read the ISC series on COP27 which brings perspectives from ISC Fellows and other members of the ISC network:
10 New Insights in Climate Science 2022
The 10 New Insights in Climate Science series is a joint initiative of Future Earth, the Earth League, and the World Climate Research Programme. The 10 New Insights in Climate Science 2022 report was prepared by a consortium of leading researchers from around the world. The annual series synthesizes the latest climate change related research for the international science-policy community. The report will be launched at COP27 on 10 November at 7:00 UTC.

Launch of the 2022 Global Carbon Budget
The Global Carbon Budget (GCB) is produced by the Global Carbon Project (GCP), which was created with the aim to bring together a global consortium of scientists to establish a common and mutually agreed understanding of the Earth carbon cycle. The GCB is the work of over 100 scientists around the world and tracks the trends in global carbon emissions and sinks, which is a key measure of progress towards the goals of the Paris Agreement.
The 2022 GCB will be launched at COP27 on 11 November at 7:00 UTC. Find out more.
