The IPCC has been established by WMO and UNEP to assess scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant for the understanding of climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation. To support a decision on the Special Report by the IPCC Plenary, a scoping meeting was organised under the auspices of the IPCC, which was held in Luebeck, Germany from 20 to 25 January 2008. The proceedings of this workshop as well as a detailed structure of the Special Report, as proposed to the 28th IPCC Plenary meeting, are available on the IPCC website. The delivery of the Special Report is due in the second half of 2010.
