LATST NEWS 13 August 2021: IPCC AR6 report jointly awarded 2022 Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity. See our work from IPCC AR6 WGI Chapter 10: Linking Global to Regional Climate Change.

On behalf of IPCC scientists who deliver the most up-to-date and robust climate change knowledge to the world's policymakers, we are honoured to receive this prominent award. Science is our most powerful instrument to tackle climate change, a clear and imminent threat to our wellbeing and livelihoods, the wellbeing of our planet and all of its species. For IPCC scientists, this prize is an important recognition and encouragement. For the decision-makers, it is another push for more decisive climate action
