About the IPCC
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the UN body for assessing
the science related to climate change. It was established by the United Nations
Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in
1988 to provide political leaders with periodic scientific assessments
concerning climate change, its implications and risks, as well as to put
forward adaptation and mitigation strategies. In the same year the UN General
Assembly endorsed the action by the WMO and UNEP in jointly establishing the
IPCC. It has 195 member states.
Thousands of people from all over the world contribute
to the work of the IPCC. For the assessment reports, IPCC scientists volunteer
their time to assess the thousands of scientific papers published each year to
provide a comprehensive summary of what is known about the drivers of climate
change, its impacts and future risks, and how adaptation and mitigation can
reduce those risks.
The IPCC has three working
groups: Working Group I, dealing with the physical science basis of climate
change; Working Group II, dealing with impacts, adaptation and vulnerability;
and Working Group III, dealing with the mitigation of climate change. It also
has a Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories that develops
methodologies for estimating emissions and removals of greenhouse gases.
assessments provide governments, at all levels, with scientific information
that they can use to develop climate policies. IPCC assessments are a key input
into the international negotiations to tackle climate change. IPCC reports are
drafted and reviewed in several stages, thus guaranteeing objectivity and
