On 28th February, the new report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was released. The report warns of the dangerous and widespread disruption that man-made climate change is causing to nature and the lives of billions of people, despite all efforts. In particular, it addresses the importance of species conservation and the urgency to act. ZALF scientists were involved in the IPCC report.

To avoid mounting loss of life, biodiversity and infrastructure, ambitious, accelerated action is required to adapt to climate change, at the same time as making rapid, deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions. So far, progress on adaptation is uneven and there are increasing gaps between action taken and what is needed to deal with the increasing risks, the new report finds. These gaps are largest among lower-income populations. ZALF scientist Prof. Dr. Heidi Webber and Prof. Dr. Frank Ewert, ZALF's scientific director, contributed to the new report's chapter on Europe.
