    Abstract

    Recent and forthcoming reports including the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Reports on Global Warming of 1.5°C (SR1.5) and on Oceans and the Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC), and the SCAR Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment (ACCE) updates, provide valuable information on climate change research findings that are relevant to the work of the Scientific Committee and its Working Groups. We encourage the Scientific Committee to continue progressing the integration of relevant information from such outputs into its work, and to consider recommendations including the reinstatement (with new Terms of Reference) of the climate change e-Group, and the further development of mechanisms to ensure that it remains abreast of the latest climate change research to inform the development of management advice.
