Climate Report 2022: our commitment for the future
The 6th Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment report was published in February 2022. With an increase in global temperatures of 1.09°C in 2021, the facts are clear and the devastating effects can already be seen: energy instability, degradation of ecosystems, unequal access to drinking water, impoverishment, etc.
The IPCC estimates that 132 million people will be threatened by extreme poverty by the year 2030, and that one billion inhabitants of coastal areas will be at risk from rising sea levels by 2050. It also warns about the lack of sufficient resources being directed, and calls for increased financial efforts in key sectors such as energy transition, water management, crop adaptation and the preservation of natural habitats.
