IPCC's fifth assessment report (AR5) - Leaflet

Source(s):  Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

This leaflet presents the fifth assessment report, due in 2014, which is aimed to provide an update of knowledge related to climate change, including information on: (i) socio-economic aspects of climate change and its implications for sustainable development; (ii) more detailed regional information; (iii) more precise considerations of risk, economics and ethics; and (iv) stabilisation of greenhouse gas concentrations.

The fifth assessment report will be made up of four reports: the three IPCC Working Groups’ contributions dealing respectively with “The Physical Science Basis”, “Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability” and “Mitigation of Climate Change”, and the Synthesis Report (SYR). Each report will contain its own Summary for Policymakers (SPM) which is approved in detail by all member countries of the IPCC and represents a formally agreed statement on key findings and uncertainties.
