Maryland and Delaware Climate Change Education Assessment and Research

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
Established by the United Nations Environment Program and the World Meteorological Organization, and authorized by the United Nations (UN), the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is dedicated to assessing the current scientific, technical and socio-economic information as it relates to climate change.  The IPCC is truly a global effort, open to all UN countries and comprising 195 members.  Thousands of scientists contribute to its work, resulting in a thoroughly reviewed policy-neutral assessment. A synthesis of the most recent assessment—released in 2007—incorporates the full reports of the three workgroups. The next report is scheduled for completion in 2014.  For more information on the IPCC and PDFs of each workgroup’s full report, visit
