Several countries have advocated at the negotiations to implement the Paris Agreement that the goal should be shifted to keeping temperature rise below 1.5 degree Celsius.
The report recommended far-reaching changes to land use, urban planning, infrastructure systems and energy use - changes that will be "unprecedented in terms of scale".
Countries must take "unprecedented" action to slash carbon emissions to zero by 2050 and limit risky global warming, a key report warns.
"One of the key messages that comes out very strongly from this report is that we are already seeing the consequences of 1°C of global warming through more extreme weather, rising sea levels and diminishing Arctic sea ice, among other changes", said Panmao Zhai, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group I, tasked with assessing the physical science basis for climate change.
And if we hold warming to 1.5 degrees instead of 2 degrees, the report suggests global sea level rise will be a whole 10 centimetres lower - potentially stopping what the reportdescribes as a "disproportionately rapid evacuation" of people from the tropics.
While 1.5°C rise in global temperature will be precarious, a 2°C rise would be catastrophic. "Even the scientists were surprised to see how much science was already there and how much they could really differentiate and how great are the benefits of limiting global warming at 1.5 compared to 2", Thelma Krug, vice-chair of the IPCC, told Reuters.
The IPCC's "Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees" was released in Incheon, South Korea, on Monday via a livestream Internet broadcast.
The report identifies various routes by which emissions cuts would limit warming to 1.5℃; each makes assumptions about future changes in, for example, economic strategy, population growth and the rate at which low carbon energy is adopted.
Ministers now face calls to replace the current target of cutting emissions by 80 per cent by 2050 with a zero-carbon target in line with the 1.5C goal. And carbon dioxide emissions must reach net zero around 2075 - meaning the amount of carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere equals the amount being removed.
"Some people say the 1.5°C target is impossible", said Stephen Cornelius, WWF-UK's chief adviser for climate change, and a former IPCC negotiator.
A half a degree doesn't sound like much but whether it is coral reefs, crops, floods or the survival of species, everyone and everything is far better off in a world that keeps below 1.5C.
Johnny Chan Chung-leung, director of City University's Guy Carpenter Asia-Pacific Climate Impact Centre, said laws - rather than targets - that mandated a certain ratio of renewables in the power mix by a certain date were also necessary.
The decisions we make today are critical in ensuring a safe and sustainable world for everyone, both now and in the future, said Debra Roberts, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group II.
The report was commissioned by world leaders as a part of the 2015 Paris Agreement, a global pact to battle global warming. Avoiding going even higher will require significant action in the next few years.
The latest research by the world's leading body on climate change highlighted that the promises countries have made so far to cut their emissions would put the world on track for 3C of warming by the end of the century.
At current levels of greenhouse gas emissions, earth could pass the 1.5 C marker as early as 2030, and no later than mid-century, the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change reports with "high confidence".

The remainder of the group were close school and neighborhood friends, including another newlywed couple, Erin and Shane McGowan . Adam Jackson worked as a deputy commissioner at the Montgomery County Board of Elections, according to his Facebook page.
And the New Conservative Party is running on a strong anti-corruption platform but has struggled to gain voter support. Polling stations close at 1700 GMT with a preliminary official result expected around 0100 GMT Sunday morning.
First half substitute Juan Mata then pulled one back from a free-kick, before Anthony Martial equalised just moments later. We were all disappointed with Wednesday as a 90 minutes as a whole, so we wanted to get off to a fast start.
Hurricane conditions will spread across the far western part of the Cuban province of Pinar del Rio this afternoon and evening. Almost a month after Hurricane Florence created unprecedented flooding, the Grand Strand is in another storm's path.
And it also comes bundled with Amazon's voice interface "Alexa", enabling users to shop or control household appliances. Because there's no way Facebook wouldn't hook any of its products through the main features of the social network.
Price remains the only pitcher without a victory among the 70 men who have started at least 10 career postseason games. Price had some ups and downs during the first half of the season, but he was locked in after the all-star break.
He asserted that "we simply followed the tradition of America". "I don't think that works politically". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) speaks to reporters after the confirmation of Brett M.
Apple and Amazon , two companies identified as victims of the hack, refuted Bloomberg's claims in statements on their websites. But the three companies featured in the story-Apple, Amazon, and Supermicro-have all issued broad and strongly worded denials.

U.N: Rapid, unprecedented change needed to halt global warming
The United Nations' climate panel has moved the goal posts for limiting climate change , setting the world a staggering challenge. Keeping the 1.5C target would keep the global sea level rise 0.1 metre lower by 2100 than a 2C target, the report states.
Trump says allegations against Kavanaugh 'hoax'
With tensions simmering, Pence got an earful from activists who booed and chanted "Vote them out!" as he walked to his motorcade. During an evening rally in Topeka, Kansas, Trump was greeted by prolonged cheers on what he called a "truly historic night".

Wind power can add to climate change
Of course, they aren't as bad as coal plants but they make us seriously think about how they can change the local temperatures. Normally the air is more still at night, with cold air staying near the surface and warmer air resting a little higher.
