Abstract: Last 6 August 2021 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), during its 54th Session finalized the first part of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis,prepared by the Working Group I. The publication of the reports on Impact and Adaptation and on Mitigation is scheduled for spring 2022. The 3949 pages WGI full report is accessible at the www.ipcc.ch web site and it will take time to study it in detail, although browsing the full report and its Summary for Policymakers (SPM) already provides a sound basis for an up-to-date approach for the assessment of the impact and design adaptation measures in water engineering, a topic of high interest for IAHR.
