READ: Alum Calynn Dowler’s IPCC report, “Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability.”

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s report on Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability was finalized on February 27th.

Here is the link to the full report:…/sixth-assessment-report-working…/

Calynn is a contributing author for the chapter on Water, which is available here:…/IPCC_AR6_WGII_FinalDraft…

The report states: “The cumulative scientific evidence is unequivocal: Climate change is a threat to human well-being and planetary health. Any further delay in concerted anticipatory global action on adaptation and mitigation will miss a brief and rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a liveable and sustainable future for all.”

Also, the report contains a lot of material that will be of interest to anthropologists — i.e., it’s not just climate science. Much of the report deals with social science research on climate change’s impacts and current adaptation efforts.
