The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has completed its report Climate Change 2007. Its final part — The Synthesis Report — was released in Valencia, Spain, on 17 November 2007. Earlier this year, the three IPCC Working Groups contributions to the AR4 were released.
The three Working Groups full reports are available online (see below). Hardcopies of the Summaries for Policymakers + Technical Summaries are available for free in the six UN official languages upon request to the IPCC Secretariat. Hardcopies of the full reports can be purchased from Cambridge University Press. A limited number of free copies are available for academic institutions from developing countries and countries with economies in transition upon request to the Secretariat. The full Synthesis Report will be available on the website within a few weeks. This is the final IPCC report in its series released in recent years.
In Oslo, Sweden on October 12, 2007, the IPCC and Al Gore Jr. were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change.
