A lack of detailed information on climate change for impact and adaptation planning led, in 2009, to a call by WCRP for greater coordination across downscaling activities.

In the short time since, CORDEX has evolved into a major developer and producer of regional climate science and information. Click the headline to read the full CORDEX spotlight article.
WCRP and the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP) are jointly organizing the "International Conferences on Subseasonal to Decadal Prediction", to be held in Boulder, USA, on 17-21 September 2018. They will serve as one important step toward ever-increasing collaboration across timescales to address societal needs for seamless and integrated climate predictions. Click the headline for details.
