The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has released the second part of its latest report on climate change.
The “Working Group 2, Fifth Assessment Report” covers the likely impacts of climate change and our capacity to adapt to future climate risks. From the last major review of almost six years ago, it provides a strengthened body of evidence on observed impacts and future risks of climate change.
The report is the work of over 310 scientific experts drawn from universities and research institutes in 73 different countries around the world.
