IPCC: Updates on revisions to the schedule of the IPCC Synthesis Report


The schedule for the Synthesis Report, the final installment of the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), is expected to be revised for operational reasons.

It is anticipated that the Synthesis Report, which was scheduled to be released in early October 2022, will be rescheduled for release in late 2022 or early 2023.?? ?

Exact changes to the schedule are to be considered by the IPCC and announced in a due course.

The Synthesis Report follows the release of three major reports over the past 10 months – the three Working Group contributions to the Sixth Assessment Report – despite the challenges to the work programme raised by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Synthesis Report will integrate the findings of the three Working Group assessments as well as the three Special Reports released earlier in the cycle in 2018 and 2019 to provide policymakers with a high-level, up-to-date understanding of climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for addressing it.
