Through its assessments, the IPCC determines the state of data on global climate change. It identifies where there's agreement within the scientific community on topics associated with global climate change, and where further research is required. The reports are drafted and reviewed in several stages, thus guaranteeing objectivity and transparency. The IPCC doesn't conduct its own research. IPCC reports are neutral, policy-relevant but not policy-prescriptive. The most activity of the IPCC is that the preparation of reports assessing the state of data of global climate change. These include assessment reports, special reports and methodology reports. To deliver this work programme, the IPCC holds meetings of its government representatives, convening as plenary sessions of the Panel or IPCC Working Groups to approve, adopt and accept reports. Plenary Sessions of the IPCC also determine the IPCC work programme, and other business including its budget and descriptions of reports. The IPCC Bureau meets regularly to supply guidance to the Panel on scientific and technical aspects of its work. The IPCC organizes scoping meetings of experts and meetings of lead authors to organize reports. It organizes expert meetings and workshops on various topics to support its work programme, and publishes the proceedings of those meetings.
