Special report on managing the risks of extreme events and disasters to advance climate change adaptation: summary for policymakers

Read IPCC Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation. It makes a strong link between extreme weather events and GHGs concentrations from anthropogenic emissions.

This Summary for Policymakers presents key findings from the Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (SREX). The SREX approaches the topic by assessing the scientific literature on issues that range from the relationship between climate change and extreme weather and climate events to the implications of these events for society and sustainable development. The assessment concerns the interaction of climatic, environmental, and human factors that can lead to impacts and disasters, options for managing the risks posed by impacts and disasters, and the important role that non-climatic factors play in determining impacts.
