Project ID 2210311011

IOC is a co-sponsor of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). WCRP provides the international and intergovernmental platform to design the research agenda on climate and climate change, on the basis of which national research agendas are developed. The discharge of such national research agendas leads to improving the knowledge base on climate and climate change, which in turn inform the assessment work of the IPCC and, ultimately, policy decisions including those of the UNFCCC and its Paris Agreement. WCRP encompasses an ocean element, of particular relevance to IOC's work and to which IOC is uniquely positioned to contribute. A main activity will be the WCRP Open Science Conference 2023: Advancing climate science for a sustainable future.
