The approval session for the Summary for Policymakers (SPM) of the Working Group II (WGII) contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) continued Thursday. 

Delegates gathered in three plenary sessions during the day, continuing their line-by-line consideration of the sections in the SPM relating to observed impacts from climate change and to climate-resilient development. Contact groups were also held in parallel, addressing the sections on “vulnerability and exposure of ecosystems and people” and “near to mid-term risks.”
