INTERGOVERNMENTAL PANEL ON CLIMATE CHANGE (IPCC)
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a scientific intergovernmental body established in 1988, which includes scientists, technicians, and officers of the United Nations. It was jointly established by the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) to collect scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide, relevant for the understanding of the risk of climate change. It is organized in three Working Groups (and the Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories) dealing with climate change causes and its possible impact and options for adaptation and mitigation strategies. The IPCC has produced several comprehensive assessment Reports, Technical Papers, Special Reports, Synthesis Reports for Policy Makers and other documents on methodologies and used techniques.
