Provisional state of the global climate in 2022
The report provides an authoritative voice on the current state of the climate using key climate indicators and reporting on extreme events and their impacts. The State of the Global Climate in 2022 is produced on an annual basis, complementing the most recent long assessment cycle provided by the sixth IPCC Assessment Report. This is the provisional version; the full and final report is expected to be published in March 2023.
This report highlights that significant gaps still exist for many key climate parameters, including ocean acidification (SDG 14) and methane emissions (SDG 13). Filling these gaps is essential for understanding the interconnections between climate change and development, and better addressing the disparities of where impacts are being felt, improving adaptation, and urging rapid mitigation.
