Requesting input for this year’s 10 New Insights in Climate Science

The  10 New Insights in Climate Science series, jointly developed by The Earth League, Future Earth, and the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), is an annual synthesis highlighting essential recent advances in climate change research with high policy relevance, from natural and social sciences. This influential policy report has been launched every year since 2017 at the climate COP with participation from the UNFCCC Executive Secretary.

Every year we rely on an extensive effort of expert consultation across the research networks of the three partner organizations. We are seeking the input of active researchers, across all disciplines, working with issues related to climate change. 

We welcome your contribution:  Please fill out this brief questionnaire sharing your thoughts on what recent insight (discovery, advance) from climate change research should be highlighted for policy-makers, negotiators and the general public. You can also indicate your interest in contributing as a co-author of the peer-review paper that underpins the policy report. The manuscripts from the 2023, 2022, 2021, and 2020 installments have been published in the journal Global Sustainability

This call for input is open until February 2, 2024.
