What’s in it for Latin America
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has produced the most comprehensive assessment of climate change ever. The Fifth Assessment Report, which the IPCC is releasing in four parts between September 2013 and November 2014, is the work of 830 expert authors, from 85 countries. Its first three volumes already stretch to 5,000+ pages.
The IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report: What’s in it for Latin America? distils the richest material on climate impacts and trends in small islands, and Latin America’s experiences in adaptation and mitigation from the thousands of pages of the Fifth Assessment Report and complemented with similar, peer reviewed case studies from such countries. The report aims to make the IPCC’s important material more accessible and usable and responds to wide demand for this type of information.
The report is also available in Spanish and can be found here.
The guide is part of a suite of materials to promote the key findings of the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report, which include companion volumes for Africa, South Asia and Small Island Developing States.
