Website on IPCC-AR5 in Dutch

The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the IPCC will provide an update of the knowledge on the scientific, technical and socioeconomic aspects of climate change. It will consist of three Working Group reports and a Synthesis Report (SYR). At the end of September 2013 the summary of the first working group will be published. The scientists of the first working group summarize in a report the globally available knowledge on the observed changes in climate (atmosphere, ocean, ice sheets, sea level, greenhouse gases), the role of humans in it and projections of future climate, both on a global and regional scale. A summary for policy makers (SPM) is made of this report. For September 23 until 26 a meeting is planned with governments to discuss and approve line by line the SPM of the Working Group I contribution to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (WGI AR5) and accept the underlying scientific and technical assessment.

KNMI has published this summary translated into Dutch, together with related FAQ on the KNMI website.

The IPCC scenarios (AR5) underlie the KNMI'14 climate scenarios. These scenarios are the translation of the global IPCC scenarios to the Netherlands.
