Behind the Scenes at the IPCC with Yamina Saheb

Monday, April 24, 2023

The IPCC report always comes as a splash for those in the climate movement, ringing the alarm bells ever more about our planet's awful condition. But who gets to write it? How do these influential documents and frameworks come about? And how do those who write it affect the narrative around climate breakdown?

This week we are delighted to be joined by one of the leader authors for the latest IPCC report Yamina Saheb. We discussed how the IPCC reports get made and who gets to make them, the working conditions of the people writing them, and how those most affected by current climate breakdown are cut out of the decision making processes. Yamina also updates us on the protests in France and how the Gilet Jaune and the climate movement are linked together.
