The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been declared a co-laureate of the prominent 2022 ‘Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity’. For its contributions to the IPCC Assessment Reports, the IIIEE feels honoured to be part of this initiative.

The 2022 Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity was awarded to IPCC together with the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). The jury, led by Dr. Angela Merkel, highlighted the crucial role of both initiatives in generating and advancing “evidence-based science” to address the critical challenges of climate change and the loss of biodiversity. The Chair of the IPCC, Dr. Hoesung Lee, received the award on behalf of the IPCC. During the ceremony, he said: “For IPCC scientists, the Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity is an important recognition and encouragement”. 

The IIIEE has contributed to the IPCC Assessment Reports on multiple occasions. Its scientific work has covered several areas of climate change including economics, energy and policy.
