About the Sixth Assessment Report
The Sixth Assessment Report is due in 2021, in time for the first United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) global stocktake when countries will review progress towards their goal of keeping global warming to well below 2 °C while pursuing efforts to limit it to 1.5 °C. The UNFCCC represents the political part of climate policy, such as the Kyoto protocol and Paris agreement. The IPCC represents the scientific element.
