The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the most up-to-date, comprehensive and relevant analysis of our changing climate.

This document is the rst in a series that will synthesize the most pertinent ndings of AR5 for specic economicand business sectors. It serves as a basic primer explainingthe process of compiling AR5 and its signicance.

Other business-orientated summaries will be released as the scientic information upon which they are basedbecomes publically available, expected late 2013 and 2014.
