Climate Change 2007: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability

Contribution of Working Group II to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

Climate Change 2007: Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability provides the most complete and current scientific assessment of the impacts of climate change, the vulnerability of natural and human environments, and the potential for response through adaptation. It:

  • Evaluates evidence that recent observed changes in climate have already affected a variety of physical and biological systems and concludes that these effects can be attributed to global warming;
  • Makes a detailed assessment of the impacts of future climate change and sea-level rise on ecosystems, water resources, agriculture and food security, human health, coastal and low-lying regions, and industry and settlements;
  • Provides a complete new assessment of the impacts of climate change on major regions of the world (Africa, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Europe, Latin America, North America, polar regions and small islands);
  • Considers responses through adaptation;
  • Explores the synergies and trade-offs between adaptation and mitigation;
  • Evaluates the key vulnerabilities to climate change, and assesses aggregate damage levels and the role of multiple stresses.
