Last month, The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a special report on Global Warming of 1.5°C, which is now regarded as one of the most important climate change reports ever published. Several scientists across the globe have been part of the research, panels and further, presentation of this report. India’s representation rightly made a mark here, too, with Scientist Minal Pathak serving as prominent member of the IPCC.
Pathak is currently working as a senior scientist with the Technical Support Unit of Working Group III (Mitigation) of IPCC. Also a member on IPCC’s recently established international task group on Gender, she coordinates activities at the Global Centre for Environment and Energy at Ahmedabad University. She is a visiting researcher at Imperial College, London, and many other prominent institutions across the world.
SheThePeople.TV engaged in a conversation with Pathak about her life as a scientist, encouraging girls in science, the latest global warming report and citizens’ responsibility towards the environment.
