A Review of the Least Developed Countries in the IPCC AR5 WGII - Presentation

The Fifth Assessment Report of Working Group
II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change was released in 2014. It examines the
impacts of climate change, inherent vulnerabilities
and adaptation responses across the globe. The
Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are identified
as being particularly vulnerable to climate change
due to economic and capacity barriers. This paper
examines the LDCs within the IPCC report to
highlight how climatic impacts, vulnerabilities and
adaptation are portrayed for these countries. It
illuminates a need for a greater focus on the LDCs
by the IPCC and for further research concentrated
on the LDCs in general, in order to enhance the
state of knowledge on LDCs and appropriately
guide related policy.
