IPCC 6th Assessment Report: The White House Office of Science & Technology Policy has welcomed the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 6th Assessment Report, created by more than 100 US experts to assess and communicate current climate science and its effects. This landmark document emphasizes that every degree matters when it comes to mitigating global climate change effects.
The IPCC is currently in its sixth assessment cycle, culminating in the production of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). This document includes contributions from three working groups, a synthesis report and three special reports.
Working Group I’s contribution – Climate Change 2021: Physical Science Basis – was released August 2021 while Group II’s Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability was released February 2022 while Working Group III’s Mitigation of Climate Change released its third contribution April 2022.
The Synthesis Report, the final product of the AR6, will be released in March 2023 and serve to inform the 2023 Global Stocktake under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The White House has expressed its appreciation to US experts who contributed to this report and stressed its significance in driving action towards mitigating climate change.
The release of the IPCC 6th Assessment Report has been eagerly anticipated by environmental activists and policymakers alike.
This document serves as an essential guide in global efforts to mitigate climate change’s effects. Its findings will inform policy decisions at both national and international levels, with many hoping they will provide momentum for more ambitious climate action.
The US has been a key participant in the IPCC’s assessment of climate science, with the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy playing an instrumental role. With mounting challenges related to climate change such as rising sea levels, more frequent extreme weather events, and biodiversity loss posed by this report, its findings are sure to have an enormous impact on global conversations about action needed now.
