Lead Author Meetings

The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute hosted the First Lead Authors Meeting (LAM1) in Panama City, Panama, 9-12 November 2009. The Vietnam National University, Hanoi, with financial support from the Government of Norway, hosted the Second Lead Authors Meeting (LAM2) in Hanoi, Vietnam, 22-25 March 2010. As is IPCC practice, only Coordinating Lead Authors and Lead Authors attended these first two meetings, with Review Editors joining the process just prior to the Expert Review. All writing team members then attended the Third Lead Authors Meeting (LAM3), held at the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, 25-28 October 2010. The Fourth Lead Authors Meeting (LAM4) was hosted by the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility of Griffith University (Gold Coast, Australia), from 16-19 May 2011.
