The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the international body for assessing the science related to climate change. The IPCC was set up in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to provide policymakers with regular assessments of the scientific basis of climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for adaptation and mitigation.

This 2014 synthesis report covers the following four areas:

  • observed changes and their causes
  • future climate changes (risks and impacts)
  • future pathways for adaptation, mitigation and sustainable development
  • adaptation and mitigation
