27 Feb 2022

The IPCC Working Group II contribution to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report: Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability was released on 27 Feb 2022. 270 authors from 67 countries assessed the impacts of climate change, looking at ecosystems, biodiversity, and human communities at global and regional levels. It also reviews the vulnerabilities, the adaptation capacities and limits of the natural world and human societies to adapt to climate change and the options for achieving climate-resilient development.

The report highlights the importance of fundamental changes in society while conserving, restoring, and safeguarding nature to meet the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals. It is clear now that minor, marginal, reactive, or incremental changes won’t be sufficient. In addition to technological and economic changes, shifts in most aspects of society are required to overcome limits to adaptation, build resilience, reduce climate risk to tolerable levels, guarantee inclusive, equitable, and just development and achieve societal goals without leaving anyone behind.
