Climate change experts gathers in Nairobi tomorrow to elect the new IPCC Bureau


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is set to begin its 59th Session to elect its new Bureau, including the new Chair of the IPCC, and the Bureau of the Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI).

The meeting, scheduled to take place from 25 to 28 July in Nairobi, is being hosted by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the government of Kenya.

The new IPCC Chair and the new IPCC and TFI Bureaus will serve for the duration of the next seventh assessment cycle, which formally begins after the election of the new Bureau. An IPCC assessment cycle lasts between five to seven years.

Following the election of the new Chair, the IPCC will issue a press release and will inform the media about any additional press arrangements.

The 59th Session will be opened by the current IPCC Chair Hoesung Lee, the Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme Inger Andersen, the Secretary General of the World Meteorological Organization Petteri Taalas and the Cabinet Secretary of Kenya’s Ministry of Environment, Climate Change and Forestry Soipan Tuya.

The election session of the IPCC is a closed meeting. Media interested in the opening ceremony can access speeches, video recordings and other media assets here.
