WCRP Strategy

To achieve its objectives, WCRP adopts a multi-disciplinary approach, organizes large-scale observational and modelling projects and provides the international forum to align efforts of thousands of climate scientists to provide the best possible climate information.

WCRP is currently implementing its Strategic Framework for the years 2005-2015 entitled Coordinated Observation and Prediction of the Earth System (COPES). Launched in 2005, COPES aims to translate WCRP achievements in fundamental understanding of climate processes into a range of products, predictions, projections and climate assessments of high societal value for a broad range of users.
In 2009, WCRP underwent an independent review commissioned by the programme sponsors (the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO). WCRP response to the major recommendations resulted in and overall programme assessment and planning activity that is currently continuing.

The WCRP Implementation Plan 2010-2015 describe the major research activities and initiatives that WCRP will promote and undertake during the next several years. These activities are based on the scientific challenges and opportunities of interest identified by the scientists involved in the programme, as well as on the national and international scientific priorities that would most benefit from the coordination and integration that can be provided by WCRP Projects and Working Groups.
