The Regional Impacts of Climate Change: An Assessment of Vulnerability: summary for policy makers (IPCC working group 2 special report, Sept 1997) html version

Exploring predictions of the regional impacts of climate change

The special report provides, on a regional basis, a review of (then) state-of-the-art information on the vulnerability to potential changes in climate of ecological systems, socioeconomic sectors (including agriculture, fisheries, water resources, and human settlements), and human health. The report reviews the sensitivity of these systems as well as options for adaptation. Though this report draws heavily upon the sectoral impact assessments of the Second Assessment Report (SAR), it also draws upon more recent peer-reviewed literature (inter alia, country studies programs).
