The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body responsible for assessing the science related to climate change. The Sixth Report from IPCC Working Group 1 published in August 2021 paints a very sombre picture for the future. This report was commented on in a news item by the International Science Council (ISC) on behalf of its members, of which IUPAC is a founding member.

Climate Change Impacts on Water Quality and Quantity

The rapid increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration since the onset of industrial revolution in 18th century has led to warmer global temperatures and an increase in the intensity and frequency of extreme climatic events, which severely affect ecosystems and water resources in many parts of the world.
