A meeting of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in Stockholm 21-27 September is due to finalize a summary for policymakers of a comprehensive assessment of the physical science basis of climate change.
The summary for policymakers, an accompanying technical summary and 14-chapter assessment form the contribution of Working Group I on the physical science basis to the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report. Working Group II’s contribution on impacts, adaptation and vulnerability and Working Group III’s work on mitigation of climate change will be published in March and April 2014 respectively. The synthesis report of the Fifth Assessment report will be considered in October 2014.
The IPCC is co-sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and United Nations Environment Programme and IPCC press release
