2008 Vigne des Nations vintage dedicated to IPCC



The Vigne des Nations ceremony took place at the Signal de Bernex in the canton of Geneva on 5 June 2009, honouring the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. The ceremony was held in the presence of the diplomatic corps, representatives of international environmental institutions based in Geneva and members of the WMO Executive Council, currrently holding its 61st session.


Since the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Organization, in 1995, it has been the tradition to honour an international organization by dedicating to it one of the vines from the domain of the Republic and canton of Geneva.


IPCC was established by WMO and the UN Environment Programme in 1988. The IPCC Secretariat is hosted in the WMO headquarters building.
