The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a truly global effort, which brings together representatives from countries all over the world to assess scientific data on climate change.

Most of the research that is assessed comes from the industrialised countries with their larger budgets for climate research and, consequently, greater volumes of publications.

But efforts are being made to include more scientists from developing countries — an attitude that has been underlined this year with the election of Rajendra Pachauri from India as chairman of the panel, the first IPCC leader to come from a developing country.
