Status of Framework Convention Talks
The scientific concern about climate change had by 1988 reached a point where the World Meteorological Organization and the UN Environment Programme jointly established the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change or the IPCC. They tasked the IPCC with assessing the science and impacts of climate change and developing a range of response options. The IPCC undertook these tasks in three distinct working groups, Working Group One on science, chaired by the U.K., Working Group Two on impacts, chaired by the USSR, and Working Group Three on response strategies, chaired by the United States.
