The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is an intergovernmental organisation founded in 1988. Its mission is to evaluate scientific, technical and socio-economic data related to climate change, its causes, its potential consequences, and mitigation strategies.
Since its creation, the IPCC has published 5 assessment reports and is currently in its sixth assessment cycle. Each report is prefaced by a summary for policymakers, which provides an overview of the situation.
