This communications Handbook, commissioned by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change offers a wealth of research on the science of climate change communication, practical tips and case studies. Also noted below is Climate Outreach's more recent guide to Communicating Carbon Pricing


This communications Handbook was commissioned by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Working Group I Technical Support Unit. This is the first time such guidance has been produced for the world?s leading scientific body on climate change.

Dr Valérie Masson Delmotte (Co-chair of IPCC WGI), who reviewed the Handbook, said "This is a beautiful Handbook and I wish I could have received such guidance when I was first involved as an IPCC author."

Just like the IPCC reports themselves, Climate Outreach believes the way IPCC authors engage with the public should be based on the best available evidence.

With a wealth of research on the science of climate change communication and a focus on practical tips and case studies, this Handbook serves as a valuable resource for IPCC authors - as well as the wider scientific community - to engage audiences with climate change.


A more focused and more recent guide from Climate Outreach is, Communicating Carbon Pricing. That guide provides policymakers and their communications colleagues with recommendations for designing and implementing effective carbon pricing communication strategies.

Drawing on case studies, research and best practice, the Guide is accompanied by - one for governments and one for business - and was commissioned by The Partnership for Market Readiness and the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition
