Governance of the IPCC Data Distribution Centre (DDC) by TGICA


1. Mission of the Data Distribution Centre


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Data Distribution Centre (DDC) provides access to data sets, climate and other scenarios, and other materials (e.g., technical guidelines on use of scenarios). The DDC operates under the oversight of the Task Group on Data and Scenario Support for Impact and Climate Assessment (TGICA), which was established by the IPCC to facilitate wide availability of climate change-related data and scenarios to enable research and sharing of information across the three IPCC working groups.
