The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a United Nations intergovernmental body that is mandated to provide “policy relevant but not policy prescriptive” information. From the 13-19th of March, the IPCC met in Interlaken, Switzerland, for the final approval session of the Summary for Policy Makers (SPM) for the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) Synthesis Report. IPCC reports are increasingly used by citizens worldwide to hold their governments accountable for sufficient climate action.
The Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC) is the only active, independently accredited faith-based organization at the IPCC. Within the IPCC, Friends uphold transparency and the integrity of the latest climate science, as well as encourage clear messaging on urgent, transformative, and rights-based climate action. During the approval session, the Quaker United Nations Office, on behalf of the FWCC, made 24 interventions in total.
