The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) invites nominations for Expert Reviewers for the First Order Draft of its "Special Report on Climate Change and Land (SRCCL)". Expert Reviewers should hold expertise in one or several of the report's five climate change-related focus areas, namely, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems.

Scheduled for publication in September 2019, the SRCCL is one of three Special Reports (SRs) within the IPCC's Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) cycle. Its outline was agreed at the IPCC's 45th session in March 2017, and the First Order Draft (FOD) is currently being finalized. Like all SR drafts, it will then undergo review by additional independent experts from around the world with a comprehensive range of scientific, technical and socioeconomic expertise on the respective subject areas. For this review of the SRCCL FOD, the IPCC is currently inviting self-nominations.

The review phase will last from from 11 June 2018 to 5 August 2018, and registration will be open until 29 July 2018. Two further review phases are foreseen, one by experts and governments towards Fall 2018, and a final government review in Spring 2019.
