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
The #IPCC #WGII #SPM for #AR6 was negotiated by member governments from 14-26 February. Governments propose alternative wording, suggest inclusion or exclusion of certain things and we as IPCC authors are there to ensure that consistency with the underlying chapters is not lost.
Above all, #IPCC is about policy relevant, but not policy prescriptive #science. The #SPM is not a political document but a policy relevant one that adheres to the underlying assessment and offers clear language for policy makers around the world #ClimateReport
But don't miss reading the #IPCC #WGII chapters and cross-chapter papers as well! They will also be released today when the embargo is lifted at 11 UTC. You can find them on the IPCC website. There is also a Technical Summary with more detail than SPM #ClimateReport
