TRANSLATIONS INTO NON-UN LANGUAGES

 

A number of countries have undertaken translation of IPCC reports into languages, which are not official languages of the United Nations. IPCC welcomes these intiatives but would note that the translations have been prepared under the responsibility of the respective country or institutions. The IPCC does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy of these translations into non-UN languages. In working to achieve the widest possible dissemination of IPCC knowledge, the IPCC is pleased to assist in making these translations available.

 

The following translations of the IPCC Third Assessment Report, Climate Change 2001 (TAR) and the IPCC Forth Assessment Report , Climate Change 2007 (AR4) have been brought to the attention of the IPCC Secretariat :
