WHAT IS INTERGOVERNMENTAL PANEL ON CLIMATE CHANGE (IPCC)?

The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a scientific, interdisciplinary body that was established in 1988 by the World Meteorological Association (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). It provides decision-makers and others with an objective source of information about climate change. Its role is to assess the latest scientific, technical, and socio-economic literature produced worldwide relevant to understanding the risk of human-induced climate change, its observed and projected impacts, and options for adaptation and mitigation.

The IPCC regularly publishes its findings in assessment reports that are reviewed by experts and governments from around the world.
