November 30 – December 3, 2020

This extraordinary JSC-41B meeting aims to make significant progress towards a “soft” implementation of the new WCRP structure and discuss the implementation of the WCRP Strategic Plan 2019-2028. We will hear back from the WCRP family on progress toward the implementation of the new WCRP, get reports and proposals for changes and new elements and come to conclusions and decisions that will allow the soft implementation of new structures, the respective governance and additional activities required leading up to the JSC-42 meeting at which the implementation will be concluded.

The focus of the meeting will be on the implementation and future elements. Reporting would be limited to results from “homework” assignments.
