Date:7/25/2012

On August 16- 17, 2012, the So Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) will host a workshop to discuss the results of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment "Special Report for Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (SREX)" for South and Central America. The event will be held in So Paulo and is organized in partnership with the IPCC, the UK's Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN).

Entitled "Managing the Risks of Climate Extremes and Disasters in Central and South America What can we learn from the IPCC Special Report on Extremes SREX?", the workshop aims to disseminate scientific information on the possible impact of the risks of extreme climate events such as heat waves, record high temperatures and heavy rain precipitation and other related disasters, as well as the options for managing these impacts, specifically in South and Central America.

Jointly sponsored by Norway's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Climate and Pollution Agency, CDKN and the IPCC, the workshop is geared toward opinion-makers, business leaders, academics, researchers and civic organizations whose policies or programs may be affected by climate extremes. The meeting will cover topics such as exposure and vulnerability in the context of the report's observations on: climate extremes; impacts and losses; and risk management options to improve current and future practices.

Comprising nine chapters and four annexes, the IPCC Special Report was prepared over two years by 220 authors from 62 countries, involving both Working Groups I and II of the IPCC. A total of 18,784 outside expert and government review comments were received in the three rounds of formal review.

The So Paulo event forms one of a series of outreach events taking place around the world designed to provide information about th
