Special Report on the Ocean to be produced by the Intergovernmental Group on Climate Change (IPCC) with support of the Prince Albert II Foundation

IUCN is pleased to announce that its Patron for Nature HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, through his Foundation, has approached the IPCC (Intergovernmental Group on Climate Change) during its 41st session in February 2015, asking it to produce a Special Report on the Ocean, which marks a major milestone for Planet Ocean.


The Intergovernmental Group on Climate Change (IPCC), the 43rd working session of which concluded on April 13th, 2016 in Nairobi, has approved the establishment of three Special Reports (1), one of which will be focused on interactions between the climate, ocean and cryosphere.

For more than a year, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the Government of Monaco have continued their efforts to stress the importance of this initiative and the issues at stake. This work was conducted in partnership with the “Ocean and Climate Platform” which brought together, prior to COP 21 in Paris, close to 70 international players from the scientific community, civil society and the business world.
