The DDC provides climate, socio-economic and environmental data, both from the past and also in scenarios projected into the future. Technical guidelines on the selection and use of different types of data and scenarios in research and assessment are also provided. The DDC is designed primarily for climate change researchers, but materials contained on the site may also be of interest to educators, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and the general public.

The Emission Factor Database (EFDB) is a project supported by the National Greenhouse Gas Inventories Programme (NGGIP), which is managed by the IPCC’s Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI).
EFDB is intended to be a recognized library, where users can find emission factors and other parameters with background documentation or technical references that can be used for estimating greenhouse gas emissions and removals. The responsibility for using this information appropriately remains with the users themselves.

The Task Group on Data and Scenario Support for Impact and Climate Analysis (TGICA) facilitates distribution and application of climate change related data and scenarios to enable research and sharing of information across the three IPCC Working Groups (Figure 1). The conduct of TGICA is governed by its mandate.
At its 47th Session on 13-16 March 2018, the IPCC adopted Decision IPCC-XLVII-9 whereupon TGICA will be renamed to the Task Group on Data Support for Climate Change Assessments (TG-Data). There are new Terms of Reference for TG-Data as well as Guidance for the Data Distribution Centre (DDC).
The IPCC is in the process of nominating the members of the new Task Group. Until that process is completed, TGICA will proceed with its ongoing activities. The pages of the TGICA can be accessed here
