Updated: Nov 10, 2023

Date:

IPCC 58th session. Interlaken, Switzerland, Congress Kursaal Hall - 2023.03.13-20

 

At the 58th session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the adoption of the "IPCC Sixth Assessment Report" was held.

This report was prepared by a team of IPCC scientists consisting of 93 authors from 37 developing countries and 56 from developed countries and received more than 6,841 comments from scientists and researchers from all countries of the world. This report is developed based on scientific, technical, and socio-economic research on climate change. Its widespread impacts, risks, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.

 
More than 650 people from 135 countries and 121 organizations participated in the approval of this report.
GOSS NGO is an official observer organization of the IPCC and participated in the approval of the "IPCC Sixth Assessment Report".
 

Issues mentioned in the report:


In 2018, IPCC highlighted the unprecedented scale of the challenge required to keep warming to 1.5°C. Five years later, that challenge has become even greater due to a continued increase in greenhouse gas emissions. The pace and scale of what has been done so far, and current plans, are insufficient to tackle climate change.
More than a century of burning fossil fuels as well as unequal and unsustainable energy and land use has led to global warming of 1.1°C above pre-industrial levels.

This has resulted in more frequent and more intense extreme weather events that have caused increasingly dangerous impacts on nature and people in every region of the world.

Every increment of warming results in rapidly escalating hazards. More intense heatwaves, heavier rainfall, and other weather extremes further increase risks for human health and ecosystems. In every region, people are dying from extreme heat. Climate-driven food and water insecurity is expected to increase with increased warming. When the risks combine with other adverse events, such as pandemics or conflicts, they become even more difficult to manage.

Keeping warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels requires deep, rapid, and sustained greenhouse gas emissions reductions in all sectors. Emissions should be decreasing by now and will need to be cut by almost half by 2030 if warming is to be limited to 1.5°C.
