Approximately 600 authors from 40 countries produced the report. More than 620 expert reviewers and many government reviewers participated in developing the report. Representatives from 113 governments reviewed and revised the summary before adopting it and accepting the underlying report. The summary can be downloaded at www.ipcc.ch
