* IPCC - the consensus on climate change
The role of the IPCC is to assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis the scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant to understanding human-induced climate change, its potential impacts and options for addressing it. The IPCC does not carry out research itself but bases its assessment on peer reviewed and published scientific/technical literature.
The panel is made up of:
- 2500+ scientific expert reviewers
- 800+ contributing authors
- 450+ lead authors
- from 130+ countries
