Did you know ? IPCC was launched 30 years ago to monitor climate change

On March 13th, 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) celebrated its 30th anniversary. Created in 1988, at the request of the G7, by two United Nations agencies (the World Meteorological Organisation and the United Nations Environment Programme), its role is to impartially assess international scientific, technical and socio-economic information on climate change. The IPCC is organised in three working groups, each of which brings hundreds of experts (observers): the first discusses the state of the scientific research on climate change, the second discusses the impact of climate change on different sectors and the possibilities for adaptation, while the third group assesses ways to reduce greenhouse gases emissions and mitigation to climate change in general. Each 5 to 6 years since 1990, the IPCC delivers assessments’ reports, key for scientists and governments all across the world. The IPCC started its 6th Assessment Report cycle (2016-2022), during which expert groups will produced three specific reports and its 6th Report (AR6), scheduled for 2022.
