save date WCRP OSC 2023

WCRP is delighted to announce that the WCRP Open Science Conference (OSC) 2023 (#WCRP2023) will take place in Kigali, Rwanda on 23-27 October 2023, at the Kigali Convention Centre.

The Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA), on behalf of the Government of Rwanda, provided a strong proposal to host the WCRP OSC 2023 in Kigali and will support WCRP to deliver a true hybrid event. This event at the heart of the African continent will allow strong engagement with research communities, stakeholders and practitioners in Rwanda and the region. This will be facilitated by joint efforts with local partners, such as the Rwanda Meteorology Agency and the University of Rwanda.

The WCRP OSC 2023 Scientific Organising Committee has already started to discuss the format of the conference to ensure that it will foster future climate science leadership, through workshops, public exhibits, forums, and other associated events. A fundraising drive is also in place, as well discussions on innovative ways to deliver effective remote participation options to ensure inclusion and engagement while minimizing our carbon footprint.

The path is set! All roads lead to Kigali!
