The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has released their latest findings as part of their Sixth Assessment Report, providing the scientific consensus on climate change. Much as the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report informed discussion leading to the Paris Agreement, we expect this report to influence high-level discussion at COP26. Furthermore, we expect these findings to provide further impetus for stakeholders to advocate for urgent climate action.
