The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a scientific body under the auspices of the United Nations (UN). It reviews and assesses the most recent scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change.
Fifth Assessment Report (AR5)
Scientists and policy makers from 115 countries formally established the second part of the fifth IPCC assessment report, in Yokohama. This second part looks at the effects of climate change and options for adaptation. The results of the fifth report do not differ much from the results of the fourth report, but the foundation has become stronger and more relevant details are available.
