Significant reports on climate change

Committee on Climate Change

The Committee on Climate Change (the CCC) is an independent, statutory body established under the Climate Change Act 2008. Its purpose is to advise the UK Government and Devolved Administrations on emissions targets and report to Parliament on progress made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for climate change.

The IPCC Climate Change 2014 Synthesis Report (Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change) outlines observed changes to the climate and their causes; future risks and impacts and future ways of adapting and mitigating.
