About the AR6 Synthesis Report
The Synthesis Report is the final product of the Sixth Assessment Report to be approved in September 2022. It synthesises and integrates the findings of all three Working Group contributions to the Sixth Assessment Report and the special reports that have been produced in this cycle
During the review, experts may comment on the structure and comprehensiveness of the report and suggest improvements on the presentation of materials graphically or through tables. They may also propose revisions, relevant additional papers with full citation, and shorten text without losing relevant information.
This version includes the first draft of the Summary for Policymakers.
Please note that the FOD is a confidential document which must not be distributed, cited or quoted. To register for the review, a self-declaration of expertise is required. Once the registration is complete, and before accessing the draft, reviewers agree to the terms of the review, including the confidentiality of the draft and review materials, which are provided solely for the purpose of the review.
Additional information on the role of Expert Reviewer is available in Annex 1 of Appendix A to the Principles Governing IPCC Work. Please also see here an information note explaining the Expert Review process:
