Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was established in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environmental Program to provide governments with all scientific information, which are known up to date, in order to tackle the phenomenon of climate change. It is, furthermore, responsible to advise governments about the causes of climate change, future risks and possible mitigation scenarios to overcome them. The IPCC has 195 members, which are also members to the World Meteorological Organization

 

Topics
1. Potential Impacts of Mitigation Scenarios on Bio-Energy Deployment and Land Use
affected by the Consequences of Climate Change

Climate Change Mitigation Scenarios constitute possible future outcomes in which global
warming is reduced by deliberate actions, including the comprehensive switching to energy
sources other than fossil fuel. Through the aforementioned range of actions, global
emissions shall be minimized, resulting in the stabilization of the atmospheric greenhouse
gas concentrations at levels that restrict the adverse consequences of climate change. With
the adoption of these scenarios, the examination of the impacts of different carbon prices
on an economy is enabled within the framework of different levels of global aspirations. It is
of paramount importance that states adopt policies that ameliorate the aforementioned
procedures always keeping in mind the potential impacts of mitigation scenarios by Bio-
Energy deployment.

 2.Implementing Measures for Reducing GHG Emissions and Increasing Yields in the Food
Sector
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, undeniably, affect the total number of yields which take
place in the food sector. Nowadays, the whole procedure of food processing has been
upgraded by the rapidly evolving technological improvements emerging in modern societies.
Nevertheless, this technological acceleration in the food sector is greatly affected by the
GHG emissions that pose a serious threat to the food processing procedure. Thus, it is
imperative that the Member States of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
implement measures aiming at reducing their total amount of emissions and also increase
their yields in the food sector, enabling them to fulfill their true technological potential. It
remains to be seen how this can be achieved since States have obtained a range of different
viewpoints in regards to their food sector and their willingness to adopt green-oriented
practices.
