Becoming involved in WCRP

The great success of WCRP is directly related to the proactive involvement of leading climate scientists and effective partnering with organizations from around the world. The following are the primary means of partnering with this programme.


Sponsors
Sponsors support WCRP financially or sponsor scientists, our core projects and integrative research activities. Many WCRP workshops and meetings are possible thanks to the contributions from a variety of sources. For example, relatively small contributions can make it possible for scientists from developing countries to participate in WCRP regional and international capacity building efforts that would normally be beyond a country’s means.
Partners
Partners contribute to WCRP initiatives by identifying joint scientific priorities, contributing scientific expertise and securing financial resources to conduct join projects. WCRP welcomes the opportunity to form partnerships with private industries, non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations, foundations and associations.
National Academies, Agencies and Climate Committees
WCRP greatly benefits from the active involvement of national agencies and national academies. The establishment of national climate committees as a mean of building a truly international network in support of integrated climate research is very helpful. The greatest benefit to all parties involved is the
strengthening of complementary research and avoidance of redundant efforts.
Scientists
WCRP invites and encourages individual scientists to make the WCRP global secretariat aware of their ongoing research and to suggest ways to integrate national, regional and international initiatives. The WCRP Joint Scientific Committee, the core projects and the cross-cutting activities welcome proposals for new collaborative activities that support implementation of the WCRP Strategic Framework.
Interested Participants

Keep up-to-date with WCRP activities by subscribing to the programme’s quarterly newsletter (e-zine) and submit news on recent research findings, publications, upcoming or successfully completed meetings for listing on the WCRP Web site.
