Cambridge Global Challenges


The IPCC seeks experts to serve in the Task Group on Data Support for Climate Change Assessments (TG-Data), either as co-chairs or as members of the Group.

The purpose of the TG-Data is to:

  • provide guidance to the IPCC's Data Distribution Centre (DDC) in order to provide curation, transparency, traceability and stability of data and scenarios related to the reports of the IPCC
  • facilitate, in cooperation with the DDC, the availability and consistent use of climate change related data and scenarios in support of the implementation of the work programme of the IPCC
  • facilitate in cooperation with the DDC the availability and use of climate change related data resulting from the activities of the IPCC in accordance with the mandate of the IPCC

The TG-DATA group will be composed of approximately 12 members, and not more than 15. The composition of the TG-DATA shall aim to reflect to the extent possible:

  • the range of scientific, technical and socio-economic views and expertise as needed to fulfil its role and responsibilities
  • geographical representation, experts from developed and developing countries and from countries with economies in transition
  • a mixture of experts with and without previous experience in IPCC
  • gender balance
  • experts with a background from relevant stakeholder and user groups


The nomination form and application procedure details are available on the Gov.Uk website for this invitation.
