Climatologist Dr. Ajit Govind on the IPCC Report's Implications on Drylands
- Impact Area
In a mini-Q&A series published this week and the next, we spoke to several ICARDA scientists to get a better sense of what the future of climate change might look like across the drylands, and to discover how ICARDA is supporting dryland smallholders to adapt.
“The report does not present new information in terms of climate knowledge per se, but what I found particularly striking is the use of much stronger, more confident language throughout this assessment.
It is the first time in the history of IPCC assessments that scientists say that the climate crisis is ‘unequivocally’ caused by human activities, which makes it a powerful tool to influence policymakers into making timely decisions.” – Ajit Govind
