In the wake of charges of sexual harassment levelled by a junior colleague at The Energy and Resources Institute (Teri), environmentalist R K Pachauri on Tuesday resigned as chairperson of the UN Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). "I have taken the decision to step down from my position as Chair of the IPCC some months before completion of my term, and with effect from February 24," Pachauri said in his letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. "The IPCC needs strong leadership and dedication of time and full attention by the Chair in the immediate future, which under the current circumstances I may be unable to provide, as shown by my inability to travel to Nairobi to chair the plenary session of the panel this week," he wrote.

On February 13, an FIR was registered against Pachauri for sexual ...
