IPCC Fifth Assessment Report

February 23, 2011

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will finalize its Fifth Assessment Report on Climate Change (AR5) in September 2014. Compared to previous reports, AR5 will put more emphasis on the socio-economic impacts of climate change and the significance of sustainable development for adaptation and mitigation. It will also provide more region-specific information on climate phenomena, economic analyses, and the evaluation of uncertainties. Read the proposed outline of the report on the IPCC website.
