IPCC stands for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It is an international body established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The IPCC is responsible for providing scientific assessments and reports on climate change, its impacts, and potential mitigation strategies. The panel comprises thousands of scientists and experts who review and synthesize the latest research to inform policymakers and the public about climate change-related issues.
