Infographics based on the IPCC's 5th Assessment Report part 3 illustrate the mitigation of climate change

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published the report of the Working Group III contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report in April 2014. It focuses on the mitigation of climate change. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and the Ministry of the Enviroment have produced infographics on the key messages of the report. They can be freely used by the public and the media. [1]

Note: When using the infographics, please cite the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, the Finnish Ministry of the Environment, and Climateguide.fi as references.

The complete set of the infographics can be downloaded as PDF file, and the individual images are also available in JPG and PNG formats. The images have divided according to their themes under the headings in the table of contents.
