WCRP has three co-sponsors:
Implementing Partners and Volunteer Contributors
WCRP funding is provided by its co-sponsors (see above), as well as from the voluntary contributions of certain countries. It enables the Programme to initiate, encourage and stimulate high-priority climate system research. Our effort is substantially supported by joint sponsorship, matching funds/support and collaborative implementation by key partners who share the scientific interests of the WCRP community.
In 2017 the countries that provided additional financial support were:
Australia, Austria, Canada, China, Finland, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, United States of America
Without these voluntary contributions WCRP would not be able to operate. We would like to thank those countries and organizations that do make such contributions and to encourage others to do so.

WCRP works closely with a number of climate research institutions towards achieving the scientific goals identified by the WCRP community, and in organizing and implementing knowledge exchange, international scientific initiatives, workshops, meetings and summer schools. We thank all these partners for their support.
In addition to the voluntary contributions to WCRP, we also acknowledge and thank the nations and institutions that host the WCRP Secretariat, Core Project International Project Offices (IPOs) and both the Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) and Subseasonal-to-Seasonal (S2S) Prediction Project offices.
