SUMMARY: The United States participates in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an intergovernmental body that oversees the development of assessments of the state of knowledge on climate change. The role of the IPCC is to assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis, the scientific, technical, and socioeconomic information relevant to understanding the scientific basis of risk of human-induced climate change, its potential impacts, and options for adaptation and mitigation. IPCC assessments are commissioned by member governments and produced by scientists and technical experts. The reports undergo expert and government review and are accepted by IPCC member governments prior to their release. Information on the IPCC and its assessments and procedures can be found at http://www.ipcc.ch. Every six to seven years, the IPCC produces a comprehensive three-volume assessment of the state of knowledge of climate change. Volumes in this comprehensive assessment cover climate change science; impacts, vulnerability and adaptation; and mitigation. The most recent of these was finalized in 2008; the next comprehensive assessment will be finalized in 2014. In addition to this comprehensive assessment, the IPCC periodically produces ‘‘special reports’’ that address specific topics on climate change. At the IPCC’s most recent plenary meeting on April 21–23, governments approved the production of a ‘‘Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation.’’ Under IPCC procedures, member governments have an opportunity to provide nominations for authors to be involved in the production of each chapter in the report. The United States provides this call for nominations for U.S. authors or reviewers for the subject report. The subject report will require the contributions of experts who can integrate the findings of the climate change science; vulnerability, impacts, and adaptation to extreme events; and E:\FR\FM\17JNN1.SGM 17JNN1
