IPCC’s Working Group – II (WG-II) has recently finalized their Assessment Report 2022 on the Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability relating to climate change and the global climate crisis on 27th February, 2022.
This report has pointed out stark findings on the impact of the current global warming of 1.1℃ on human and ecological systems. It also warns how the ability of humans to respond to the current global warming patterns will be increasingly limited with every additional increase in global warming temperatures. The report recognizes the interdependence of climate, biodiversity, humans and ecosystems (Figure 1).
Let’s look at some key findings in the 6th Assessment Report on Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability.
