Meeting with Vice-Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Ramón Pichs-Madruga. A lecture on the scenarios for the global socio-economic development and their relationship with climate change

Dr. Ramón Pichs-Madruga specializes in the academic research of the socio-economic aspects of environmental protection and sustainable development, including the development and assessment of socio-economic and environmental scenarios, as well as methods for the economic assessment of ecosystem services and biodiversity. During the preparation of the Sixth Assessment Report by the IPCC, he served as Vice-Chair of Working Group III that conducted a comprehensive assessment of issues related to climate change mitigation. The report that was released in March 2023 highlighted the socio-economic and environmental implications of climate change mitigation measures. This Working Group has also assessed a range of hypothetical global emissions scenarios, both with and without mitigation measures, taking into account their linkages with the Sustainable Development Goals.
