SREX Call for Author Nominations

A decision was taken at the 30th session of the IPCC (21-23 April 2009 • Antalya, Turkey) to undertake the Special Report, following IPCC procedures (92KB) and with the involvement of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR). Slight modifications were made to the approved outline of the report.
A call for Lead Author and Review Editor nominations was issued to Governments and Observer Organizations on 25 May 2009, with nominations packages accepted through 27 July 2009. A Science Steering Group was convened to evaluate Government and Observer Organization inputs to achieve the necessary disciplinary, gender, and regional balance required to undertake a comprehensive assessment.

The Working Group I and II Bureaus concurred with SSG recommendations on writing team compositions, with slight augmentation (based on both acceptance/regrets and identified disciplinary or regional gaps). Coordinating Lead Authors (CLAs), Lead Authors (LAs), and Review Editors (REs) were notified of their appointments on 10 September 2009.
