The IPCC Data Distrubtion Centre (DDC) facilitates the wide availability of climate change related data and scenarios to enable research on climate change, impacts and response options.
It provides a variety of data, information, and technical guidelines to support analysis of climate change, impacts, and response options including adaptation. The data include emissions data and scenarios, observed climatologies, climate change scenarios, and other socio-economic and environmental data.
Potential future plans that would support the objectives of the Nairobi work programme are highlighted in the IPCC's three action pledges. These ideas still require approval from the IPCC and adequate support.
