What is the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a UN body whose objective is to provide governments with the scientific information they need to develop policies related to climate change. Thousands of scientists from across the world contribute to its work.

They are particularly noted for their series of ‘assessment reports’ – the sixth of which was published in 2021 – which provide a thorough and up-to-date review of the latest understanding around climate change: in terms of the impact it is having on the planet, future risks and possibilities for adaptation and mitigation.
