Inclusion of Indigenous Knowledge into the IPCC
Tero Mustonen - Snowchange
Each region/chapter should have an Indigenous coordinator for regional view
Neil Adger, CLA – Chapter 12 on Human Security:
The chapter will be drafted and reviewed extensively over the next two years
We would be delighted to receive notification, with as full details as possible, of any peer reviewed articles that you believe are relevant or are in press or even submitted to journals. Please pass these on us CLAs and we will ensure that they are assessed if we have missed them in our systematic searches of the literature to date.
We would very much appreciate a list of potential reviewers for the expert review process. This is the most important part of the IPCC process to ensure comprehensiveness and balance and legitimacy within the scientific community. Please send these with full contact details which we can then ensure TSU sends the first order draft out to the widest review. We will need this by the end of the year as the draft for expert review will be circulated in spring of 2012.
Peer reviewed documents for the regional coordinators
The key criterion for inclusion of material in any IPCC assessment is that it is in the peer-reviewed literature. The central task of the IPCC is indeed to review that state of science as embodied in that literature. So we would urge you to ensure that a summary paper or any other paper is published by early 2013 which is the cut off date for our assessment. This should be feasible given your timetable.
