- To provide a database with observed responses to climate change for multidisciplinary studies.
- The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) Observed Climate Change Impacts Database, Version 2.01 contains observed responses to climate change across a wide range of systems as well as regions. These responses include systems for which climate change has played a major role in observed changes, regional-scale impacts where climate change has played a minor role, and sub-regional impacts. Impacts on physical, biological, and human systems were differentiated, and the area impacted can vary from specific locations to broad areas such as a major river basin.
