Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change: Scientific intergovernmental body on climate change
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is an intergovernmental body of the United Nations responsible for advancing knowledge on human-induced climate change. It was established in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and later endorsed by United Nations General Assembly. It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, and is composed of 195 member states. The IPCC is governed by its member states, which elect a bureau of scientists to serve for the duration of an assessment cycle ; the bureau selects experts nominated by governments and observer organisations to prepare IPCC reports. The IPCC is supported by a secretariat and various "Technical Support Units" from specialised working groups and task forces.
