Produced by Paloma Trascasa-Castro

Listen on

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body for assessing the science of climate change. During the last 4 years, scientists from around the world have been working on the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), that will provide key information about the current state of climate change, future projections, adaptation and mitigation.

Dr Amanda Maycock, Associate Professor in Climate Dynamics at the University of Leeds, has been a lead author in Working Group I, which assesses the physical science basis of climate change. She shares with us her experience as a first time lead IPCC author and a sneak peek of AR6.
