UNEP is responsible for implementing the WCIRP. Activities are undertaken in cooperation with relevant agencies, including WMO, ICSU, FAO, UNESCO and its 10C, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and the UNFCCC Secretariat, and jointly with other components of the WCP. Research in the 1980s showed that some aspects of climate could be predicted and that human activity could have a serious impact on the global climate system.
