IPCC 30th Anniversary hosted by Switzerland

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was established by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme in 1988 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.

The IPCC activity is funded through voluntary contributions, and thousands of scientists and other experts contribute on a voluntary basis as authors, contributors and reviewers.

On the occasion of the celebration of the IPCC 30th anniversary, the Swiss Federal Council, the State Council of the Republic and Canton of Geneva and the Executive Council of the City of Geneva organized a reception on Thursday 28 June 2018.
