Future Climate Impacts by Region
This summary of potential impacts of climate change is based on a region-by-region analysis published in 2007 by IPCC Working Group II. A more complete description of these and other regional impacts can be found in the group's April 6, 2007, Summary for Policymakers, available on the main IPCC Web page.
The IPCC has assigned "high confidence" to the projected impacts described below, unless otherwise stated. It is important to note that some impacts are due to climate change intersecting with other stressors, such as population growth, political and socioeconomic conditions, and the like, as described in the Working Group II Summary for Policymakers.
