It was established by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide political leaders with periodic scientific assessments concerning climate change, its implications and risks, as well as to put forward adaptation and mitigation strategies.
Prof. Amal Saad Hussein; Head of Environmental Research Division, National Research Centre, is an expert in IPCC Working Group II (WGII) since 2016, and an IPCC expert reviewer since 2010. WGII is dealing with impacts, adaptation and vulnerability.
She was invited as expert IPCC WGII for the scoping meeting for the Synthesis Report of AR6 of the IPCC, which was held in Singapore (21 – 23 October 2019), to prepare the outline draft of the Synthesis Report for the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), which will provide policymakers in 2022 with the most up-to-date scientific information related to climate change. The scoping meeting brings together 80 experts from 38 countries and IPCC Bureau members (30 members), and she was representing Egypt in this meeting. Previously, she was invited as expert in WGII for the Scoping meeting for the IPCC AR6, that was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (1 – 5 May 2017), to prepare a scoping paper describing the objectives and an annotated outline of the AR6.
