Meanwhile, Professor Chukwumerijes Okereke from the Department of Geography and Enviromental Science will be a coordinating lead author for Working Group III, which will assess the options for reducing the rate at which climate change is occurring. His appointment has also been reported by Enviro News Nigeria.
The three working groups will finalise their contributions by 2021, with a Synthesis Report due in 2022. With 721 experts from 90 countries contributing to the assessment, its conclusions will inform the first Global Stocktake, a periodic review of the progress attained towards the long-term goals set by the 2015 Paris Agreement.
