IPCC Climate Change 2014 Synthesis Report, Bern

Location: Bern, Switzerland

Date: 3 November 2014

The IPCC Fifth Assessment Report continues the series of comprehensive summaries of current knowledge on climate change. The assessment reports document the observed and projected change of climate, its causes and impacts as well as possible strategies of mitigation and adaptation to global warming. They build a standard for everybody engaged with climate change in research, government, industry, or policy. The new Synthesis Report combines the content of the three Working Group reports I (the physical science basis), II (impacts, vulnerabilities and adaptation) and III (mitigation of climate change) into an integral perspective and emphasizes cross-cutting issues.

This event provides an insight into the Synthesis Report, presenting the elements connecting the issues accross the three Working Group reports. This allows a new view on the results of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report. The Chair of IPCC, the Co-Chairs of Working Group I and Lead Authors involved in preparing the Synthesis Report will present the most important findings. Target audience of this event are stakeholders from government, economy and policy as well as researchers, representatives of the media and the interested public.
