Interviews with authors of IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere
Created time:2019-09-09

GENEVA, Sept 4 – Authors and Bureau Members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will be available for interviews following the press conference to present the Summary for Policymakers of the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC). The press conference will be held at 11.00 a.m. local time on Wednesday 25 September 2019 at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco in the Principality of Monaco.

The interviews are expected to take place from around 13.00 onwards local time (CEST). These interviews can be conducted in person at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, or by phone or other remote means for those not attending the press conference in person.

Interviews can also be arranged with authors who will not be in Monaco on 25 September.

A list of experts available for interviews can be found here. The list also indicates the country of the author, languages in which they can be interviewed, and their field of specialization.

Requests for interviews should be made on this form.

Make sure you complete all the fields relevant to your interview so that we are able to process your request according to your needs.

The IPCC expects to receive more requests than can be accommodated following the press conference. To accommodate as many interviews as possible on the day, the IPCC may also suggest an alternative interviewee, based on the needs specified when completing the form. If your interview request cannot be met on 25 September, there will be further opportunities in the following days and weeks.

Please note that only interviews arranged via this process will be considered as confirmed. Any arrangements made directly with IPCC experts may be subject to cancellation.

For information about the press conference including details of accreditation and access to embargo materials, please see this media advisory.

If you are bringing equipment to the press conference and for interviews, there is a garage beneath the Museum (Parking du Chemin des Pêcheurs). Please note there is very limited space for satellite trucks or similar outside the Museum and they would require special permits.
