DFO scientists from the Pacific, Maritimes, and Central and; Arctic regions are among those recognized for their contributions to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007. The Nobel Committee announced the award on October 12, 2007, to be jointly shared by the IPCC and Al Gore, former Vice- President of the United States, for "efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change." Fourteen DFO scientists participated in IPCC Working Groups over the past 20 years in a variety of roles. Their contributions demonstrate the international calibre of these researchers and their commitment to global sharing of knowledge.”
