- What’s IPCC you ask?
- IPCC is there to provide the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of knowledge in climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic impacts.
- To date, this UN body has issued 5 heavyweight assessment reports on the state of the climate.
- The IPCC itself is run by a small secretariat in Geneva.
Appointments like these provide us a good time to reflect back on the organisations at large. Who knows whether the mighty UPSC sneaks in an objective or two!
