In this talk we discuss some serious and troubling questions over the handling of the climate science-policy nexus by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). While some of these questions have long bedevilled the IPCC process, we discuss how they have come to a head with the three recent Special Reports issued by the IPCC. We comment, in particular, on how the reports and their approval/adoption processes have begun to reflect the climate policy agenda of the developed countries, in the context of the contentious North-South divide and intra-South divisions that characterise the negotiations currently. The talk will also discuss the implications of these issues for global climate action and India's domestic climate policy.
