The final report on the State of the Global Climate in 2020 is a multi-agency report spearheaded by WMO and combining input from UN agencies, national meteorological and hydrological services and associated institutions, regional climate centres and dozens of experts. Several WCRP scientists were involved.
It provides comprehensive details of climate indicators such as extreme weather, land and ocean temperatures, ice retreat and sea level rise. It also includes information on climate and weather impacts on both humans and land and marine ecosystems in a year when socio-economic development was hit by COVID-19.
The press conference is broadcast live on http://webtv.un.org/
