June 28 – July 2, 2021
This 42nd meeting of WCRP’s Joint Scientific Committee (JSC-42) aims to take a number of important decisions for the programme, including the approval of the plans for the new Lighthouse Activities, the new “Core Projects” on “Earth System Modelling and Observations” and “Regional Climate Information for Society” as well as progress with the current Core Projects, Grand Challenges and other major activities.
The JSC and leadership of our activities will discuss and decide on the next steps for the “soft” implementation of WCRP’s Strategic Plan including the format and structure of the Implementation Plan itself.
