The IPCC Climate Change 2014 Synthesis Report is based on the reports of the three Working Groups of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), including relevant Special Reports.

The Extended Synthesis Report follows the structure of the longer report, which addresses the following topics:
- Observed changes and their causes;
- Future climate change, risks and impacts;
- Future pathways for adaptation, mitigation and sustainable development;
- Adaptation and mitigation.
