The 6th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was presented yesterday. The IPCC’s reports are considered the scientific consensus and basis for climate policy decisions.

Further sub-reports on the effects of climate change and ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are expected to follow next year.
