The document was presented in Berlin on April 13, 2014. More than 800 experts were working on it from around the world. Russian co-authors of the report were:

- I. Bashmakov, Executive Director of the Center for Energy Efficiency, Moscow
- A. Romanovskaya, PhD in Biology, Senior Researcher, Head of the Department for greenhouse gas fluxes monitoring in natural and anthropogenically disturbed ecosystems in Hydrometeorological Global Climate and Ecology Institute, Moscow
- F. Veselov, Head of the Department for Development and Reforms in the Electric Power Sector, Energy Research Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences (ERI RAS), Moscow

Report have gathered the latest research evidence and strengthen the argument showing that reducing emissions is currently cheaper and will bring a greater effect, than inaction.

The report pays special attention to the benefits of the clean renewable energy use and the fossil fuels abandonment in the long term. Together with the need to transform the worlds power generation, IPCC offers other options to respond to the climate change, for example, energy efficiency, investment in clean transport and energy efficient building technologies.
