The TFI TSU under the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was set up at IGES in 1999 during IPCC’s third assessment cycle and has been operated through IPCC’s fourth, fifth and sixth assessment cycles with the support from the Government of Japan. As a result of the election of IPCC Bureau members at the 59th Session of IPCC on 24-28 July 2023 in Nairobi, Kenya, it was determined that the TFI TSU will continue working at IGES with the support from the Government of Japan during IPCC’s seventh assessment cycle for 5-7 years from July 2023.
IGES is the hosting institute of TFI TSU designated by the Government of Japan, and TFI TSU staff members are employed by the IGES, not by the IPCC or United Nations. While TFI TSU as a team is required to work in accordance with the “Terms of Reference of the IPCC Secretariat and the Technical Support Units” decided by the IPCC and its work is supervised by the IPCC TFI Bureau, each staff member of TFI TSU needs to follow the IGES regulations in terms of administrative matters and also the Terms of Reference of his/her position decided by the IGES as provided in this document.
