IPCC Task Group Proposals on Governance

David Holland made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Energy and Climate Change

The request was refused by Department of Energy and Climate Change.

From: David Holland

Dear Department of Energy and Climate Change,

The draft report of the 32nd session of the IPCC reports the
following decisions of the Panel:

“The Panel welcomed and acknowledged the recommendations and
suggestions by the IAC on the IPCC’s governance and management
(Chapter 4 of the IAC Report) and decided to establish an
inter-sessional Task Group on Governance and Management to develop
proposals related to the recommendations by the IAC and the
decisions taken at the 32nd Session as listed above. The Task Group
is specifically requested to address, inter alia, the issues listed
in Annex II to this decision and propose amendments, including to
the Principles Governing IPCC Work, and its Appendices, and other
relevant documents, if necessary, by 31 January 2011. Governments
will then be invited to provide comments on the proposals by 28
February 2011 to allow preparation of a revised draft for
consideration and decisions by the Panel at its next Session
(IPCC-XXXIII).”

I have searched the IPCC and DECC websites but cannot find the
document which the Task Group on Governance and Management, of
which the UK is a Co-chair, was required to be provided by 31
January 2011.

[1] Please supply me and electronic copy of it or a URL

[2] Please also supply me with copy of, or a URL, for the British
government’s comments on the Task Group’s proposals. I note that
the due date for this is by 28 February 2011 and would ask that if
it not now held you advise me of date that it planned to be held.

[3] Please also provide me with any documented departmental
instructions for deciding when, and which, IPCC documents received,
sent and held by DECC are to be either published at the DECC
website or clearly referenced there as available at the IPCC
website in accordance with EIR regulation 4.

Yours faithfully,

David Holland
