IPCC

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a scientific intergovernmental body tasked with reviewing and assessing the most recent scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change. It provides the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic consequences, notably the risk of climate change caused by human activity.

 


IGBP The vision of IGBP is to provide scientific knowledge to improve the sustainability of the living Earth. IGBP studies the interactions between biological, chemical and physical processes and interactions with human systems and collaborates with other programmes to develop and impart the understanding necessary to respond to global change.

 


Human actions lie at the heart of current global environmental change. Societies define the boundaries and character of their environments, while affecting and reacting to their environment with only a limited and biased understanding of it. To understand and respond effectively to these current changes requires major inputs from the social sciences - the perspective of human behavior and actions. IHDP
