Climate change: IPCC 5th assessment report

This document is the second in a series that synthesizes the most pertinent findings of AR5 for specific economic and business sectors. It was born of the belief that businesses could make more use of AR5, which is long and highly technical, if it were distilled into accurate, accessible, timely, relevant and readable summaries. Although the information presented here is a ‘translation’ of the AR5’s first instalment – Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis – it adheres to the rigorous scientific basis of the original source material.

The Executive Summary for Policy Makers presented in this overview report, can be found here.
