The Joint Scientific Committee of WCRP, at its extraordinary JSC 2011 meeting in October 2011 in Boulder,
United States of America, confirmed the establishment of a WCRP Modeling Advisory Council to
strengthen the coordination and synergies between the various modeling efforts across the program.

The establishment of the Modeling Council is the result of a long preparatory process which has
considered evaluations and findings from a number of groups and events including the OceanObs’09
Conference, the Framework for Ocean Observing, the ICSU Visioning Process and the Belmont Forum
and the subsequent creation of the Earth System Sustainability Initiative, the World Climate Conference-
3 and the subsequent establishment of the Global Framework for Climate Services, and the recent
WCRP Open Science Conference focusing on “Climate Research in Service to Society”, and calling for
‘actionable science’ and closer connection with decision makers.
