AR6 Synthesis Report, IPCC 6th Climate Change Report, 2023 : Key findings, policy options and the role of forests
In March 2023, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a synthesis report that concludes eight years of work. It summarises the state of knowledge on climate change and its impacts on human societies and ecosystems. The experts call for a drastic and rapid reduction in greenhouse gas emissions while implementing measures to adapt to climate change. According to the report's authors, several effective and affordable options for action are available - including forest conservation, reforestation, agro-forestry, and certain agricultural practices. However, the experts lament that the financial flows that must be devoted to this are still far from up to the task.
