The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the UN body for assessing the science related to climate change. The IPPC provides political leaders with periodic scientific assessments concerning climate change, its implications and risks, as well as to put forward adaptation and mitigation strategies. On 28 February 2022 a new IPCC climate report was published, describing the worsening of climate conditions: “The world faces unavoidable multiple climate hazards over the next two decades with global warming of 1.5°C (2.7°F). Even temporarily exceeding this warming level will result in additional severe impacts, some of which will be irreversible. Risks for society will increase, including to infrastructure and low-lying coastal settlements.”
