Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change


Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

▪ United Nations panel
       United Nations panel established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988. Headquartered with the WMO in Geneva, Switz., the IPCC assesses peer-reviewed literature and industry practices to determine the impact of and possible responses to climate change. While it produces no research of its own, its members—divided into three working groups and a task force—assemble reports from hundreds of scientists and policymakers from around the globe. These are analyzed and distributed as special papers or as more-comprehensive assessment reports. In 2007 the IPCC shared, with Al Gore (Gore, Al), the Nobel Peace Prize for disseminating knowledge about man-made climate change.
