Climate Change Negotiations – UNFCCC, COP, Other Conventions and Protocols

Korea’s Hoesung Lee named head of IPCC. What’s IPCC?

  1. What’s IPCC you ask?
  2. 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.
  3. To date, this UN body has issued 5 heavyweight assessment reports on the state of the climate.
  4. 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!
