The Organisers of the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP15) to be held in Copenhagen at the end of 2009 have asked IARU to organise this conference as part of the run-up to the COP Summit. The purpose of the conference is to try and capture some of the enormous research energy currently being devoted to the elucidation, mitigation and adaption to climate change. Thus, the focus of the conference is on providing a picture of the big issues that the scientific community feels it is necessary that policy makers are aware of in order to make enlightened decisions with respect to the balancing of adaptation and mitigation in the societal response to climate change.
