"The fourth and final instalment of the sixth assessment report (AR6) by the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the body of the world’s leading
climate scientists, is the synthesis report, so called because it draws
together the key findings of the preceding three main sections. Together, they
make a comprehensive review of global knowledge of the climate.

The first three sections covered the physical science of the climate crisis,
including observations and projections of global heating, the impacts of the
climate crisis and how to adapt to them, and ways of reducing greenhouse gas
emissions. They were published in August 2021, February and April 2022

The synthesis report also includes three other shorter IPCC reports published
since 2018, on the impacts of global heating of more than 1.5C above
pre-industrial levels, climate change and land, and climate change and the
oceans and cryosphere (the ice caps and glaciers)."
