Thank you to the @IPCC_CH's 700+ experts from 90 nations for completing #AR6. A multilateral tour de force of #ClimateScience.

Here are 5 #infographics that help explain the individual reports captured in this #IPCC cycle.

A synthesis of the synthesis 🤔 is in the works!
1) Global Warming of 1.5°C (2018) #SR15…

Working with @SISeneviratne, @JoeriRogelj, @MelichatGo and countless others. We translated into five languages aside from English: Mandarin, Arabic, Russian, Spanish and French @BMHayward

Petit update
La trad de la Fig 13.28 du #WGII #GIEC #AR6 sur les risques en Europe, que l'on m'a si gentiment demandé 😉.
Elle est un poil augmentée de ce que j'ai pu voir ci et là (notamment sur un fil de VMD). Image
J'avais oublié celle-ci: Box-1.4 Full Report WGI AR6 (en mode custom) et pour laquelle j'ai tenté de rajouter la figure tirée du papier d'origine.
Je rajoute quelques trads de l'excellent (et percutant) travail d'@ed_hawkins avec ses #WarmingStripes
+ un p'tit truc perso basé sur le même principe (ça date un peu).


poke @lea_falko, pour celles que vous montrez en direct, les voici en 🇫🇷 😇 ImageImageImageImage

What does gender equity have to do with climate change? A lot - according to science. It sits within the larger issue of #climatejustice.

A brief thread on Gender in the #IPCC #WGII and #WGIII reports. TL;DR: Discourse has shifted from women as victims to agents of change. 🧵🧵
Let's start with the #WGII key message. Emphasis on 'for all' mine - but this is key. Climate action must be for everyone/ especially the most marginalised, like women often are. 'For all' comes from #SDGs in case you missed it.
AR6 is different from previous reports - it centres around equity and justice. It identifies LOTS of adaptation strategies around the world, but notes that many of these are not effective. BUT: Adaptation solutions that are effective and feasible conform to principles of justice.

I've been asked by many journalists about the concept of #maladaptation in the new #WGII #IPCC report out last week. Since this is a topic that I have been working on for a while, here comes a brief thread with a bit of history and some resources for further insights 🧵👇🏼
Unlike some claims, maladaptation is not a 'new' concept for the #IPCC. In fact, in my 2004 PhD I cite #WGII's Third Assessment Report - chapter 20 by Smit et al is the place to go for that background. Bob Kates and Tony Oliver-Smith are others who have written on #maladaptation
Maladaptation in its most basic form refers to when adaptation strategies go wrong ('mal'). This means that people become more sensitive or exposed to climate change such as closing off opportunities for income-generation or creating new hazards. ++ examples below, 1st reading👇🏼

'Where are the numbers in the new #IPCC #WGII report??'
Irate journalists demanded to know at a press briefing with some IPCC authors over the weekend. A brief thread on why this IPCC report may contain the most (and most robust) qualitative social science knowledge yet.
The #IPCC process has been critiqued for being positivist and reductionist - favouring messages with numbers over descriptive contextual knowledge. @NavrozDubash, @MulugettaYacob and I attempted to summarise this here last year:…
We drew on established arguments, for example by Castree et al (2014) that previous efforts to consolidate climate change knowledge 'reveal a limited conception of social science and virtually ignore the humanities'.…

1. I am a Co-ordinating lead author of the #IPCC #WGII Chapter 18 on Climate resilient development (CRD) pathways, along with @AromarRevi and @bl_preston. CRD a foundational concept for the WGII report. But what is it? #ClimateReport #IPCC
2. The key message of #IPCC #WGII #AR6 Ch 18 is: Every development choice now moves us toward or away from a climate resilient future. This means that more than before, we see the connection of #SustainableDevelopment and climate change.
3. #ClimateResilientDevelopment (#CRD) is defined as the strategic combination of adaptation to climate change with mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions to support sustainable development. #ClimateReport #IPCC #WGII.

For almost 20 years, the world's most powerful militaries (also some of the biggest carbon polluters) have been pushing a narrative that climate change will need a security response. Today's #IPCCReport shows the opposite is needed 🧵
The US, UK, Australia, EU and others argue that climate change will lead to increased conflicts and migration and instability that require military readiness. Unfortunately many have bought into this rhetoric but the IPCC shows this is not confirmed by the evidence New York Times Headline: Climate Change poses a widening thr
This rhetoric has helped fuel an ever more militarised and inhumane response to refugees. Border militarisation has been prioritised over providing climate finance to the poorest countries Graphic: Seven of the world's biggest historic emitters of g

A new IPCC #climate science report is out today, covering impacts and adaptation. What are the implications for #security in the evolving strategic environment? 🧵
The gravity of the #WGII report may get lost in the crisis of the past week, but it makes clear that the old stability is gone in more ways than one. 2/
Climate is changing the domain. Impacts on their own alone won't cause conflicts, but climate & the energy transition may not be far below the surface of how they play out (see countering a petrostate). 3/

Today the #IPCC #WGII report for #AR6 (6th Assessment Report) is released. But there seems to be much confusion about the report, and the document that was just negotiated by member countries during the last two weeks. A quick explainer thread🧵👇🏿👇🏼#ClimateReport
The full 'report' of #IPCC's Working Group II on 'Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability' contains 18 chapters and 7 cross-chapter papers. Chapters: 1 intro, 7 regional, 7 thematic/sectoral, 3 synthesis ch focussing on risk, adaptation and #climateresilientdevelopment.
The #IPCC #WGII Summary for Policymakers (SPM) accompanies the report and is a shorter document (35pp in Word) that brings together the findings across the entire WGII report with an emphasis on observed and projected impacts, adaptation and climate resilient development
