Concluding four years of intense scientific collaboration by hundreds of authors from around the world, “Climate Change 2014: Mitigation of Climate Change” is the AR5 Working Group III contribution to the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). My earlier post on AR5 WGII is here.
AR WGIII “Climate Change 2014: Mitigation of Climate Change” assesses literature on the scientific, technological, environmental, economic and social aspects of mitigation of climate change. It builds on the Working Group III contribution to the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), the Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN) and previous reports and incorporates subsequent new findings and research.
The report also assesses mitigation options at different levels of governance and in different economic sectors, and the societal implications of different mitigation policies, but does not recommend any particular option for mitigation.
AR5 WGIII is found here.
