Independent SAGE is a group of scientists, unaffiliated to the government, who provided independent advice to the UK government during the COVID-19 pandemic. They were widely commended for their actions and a new climate advisory groups, founded by the head of SAGE, aims to emulate this success on a global scale. The group, comprising of 14 experts from 10 countries, will advise, warn and criticize global policymakers on their handling of the climate crisis.

So what?

The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated how important science based policies are. Despite decades of warnings, the climate crisis has never been addressed properly by policymakers across the world. This new climate advisory groups aims to overcome the barriers that have prevented this and to instill a greater sense of urgency amongst policymakers. If they are successful, they may create a future in which science-based policies for tackling the climate crisis are considered and implemented locally, but with a global context in mind.
