Climate Change 2014: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability is the latest report from the hundreds of experts at the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The second of three studies in the organisation’s 2013/14 review follows on from its September report into the physical science of climate change. This outlined how the evidence for manmade climate change was stronger than ever and that despite a slowdown in warming, temperatures could still rise above 2C by 2100.

Working Group II’s report looks at climate change impacts, adaptation and vulnerability. It maps out in no uncertain terms how warming temperatures will affect food prices, national security and the environment.

The video below (which you will have to watch on Vimeo) was produced by the IPCC and details some of the findings in its latest report.
