All4TheGreen: Celebrating 30 Years of the IPCC
The IPCC was founded in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) to prepare, based on available scientific information, assessments on all aspects of climate change and its impacts, with a view of formulating realistic response strategies. Since then, the IPCC has delivered on a regular basis the most comprehensive scientific reports about climate change produced worldwide, the Assessment Reports, which have provided the foundation for policymakers to act on climate.
"The IPCC has a remarkable history. The case for action on climate change would not be as unequivocal without the strong peer-reviewed science base."
- Ban Ki-moon, 8th Secretary General of the United Nations
"It provides a road-map by which policymakers can take action and deal with the challenge of climate change."
- Hoesung Lee, Chair, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
"Science played an important role in making the Paris Agreement possible."
- Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary, UN Climate Change
