This reading list has been compiled to support DFID’s internal training
sessions on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working
Group II (WG II) contribution to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5).
The reading list is an annotated bibliography with a synopsis of content
for each material and it is divided into three sections. The first
section contains a short list of pre-session reading materials. The
second section is focused on resources to fill evidence gaps from a
development perspective. While these resources are aimed at development
practitioners, they are mainly drawn from grey literature. The third
section contains a range of supplementary reading materials, mainly
drawn from academic literature, that are designed to build and expand on
the evidence base presented by WG II. They are grouped around the
following themes: economic growth, poverty alleviation, food (including
agriculture, livestock and fisheries), disasters, water, health, cities,
human security and adaptation. Relevant resources for geographical
regions and long term projections are also included.
