Revised schedule of the IPCC Synthesis Report

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change(IPCC) has rescheduled the approval session for the Synthesis Report (SYR), which will integrate the findings of the Working Groups and Special Reports released in this assessment cycle, to be held in person from 13th to 17th March 2023, hosted by Switzerland. Following the Panel's approval, the report's public release is scheduled for 20th March 2022.
The Panel also rescheduled the review of the Final Government Distribution to take place from 21st November to 15th January 2023 after extensive consultations with the SYR section facilitators, the SYR Scientific Steering Committee, and the IPCC Bureau.
The Synthesis Report follows the release of three major IPCC reports over the past 12 months–the three Working Group contributions to the Sixth Assessment Report–despite the challenges to the work programme posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Synthesis Report of the Sixth Assessment Report will integrate the findings of the three Working Group contributions and the three Special Reports released in 2018 and 2019. It will provide policymakers with a high-level, up-to-date understanding of climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for addressing it.
