WCRP look forward to meeting you at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting from 10-14 December 2018 in Washington D.C.

WCRP will host a Town Hall, together with the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM). Details below:

TH25I: International Climate Science in the Next Decade: A Vision from the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM)

Climate science is already being called upon to provide the knowledge required for wise mitigation and adaptation decision-making in a changing world. This need will grow, and addressing the challenges and taking advantage of the opportunities that arise will require a worldwide effort, a prepared scientific work force, and strong global partnerships.

The World Climate Research Program (WCRP), U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), and National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) play important roles in the development and coordination of future climate change research. This Town Hall will: outline and seek input to the WCRP vision and strategic plan as WCRP enters its fifth decade of international climate research coordination; highlight the process and progress of the USGCRP triennial strategic plan update and opportunities for engagement; and review the recent work of the NASEM in engaging the scientific community and identifying future research needs. Together we welcome AGU community input into the development and implementation of these plans, as well as ideas for how best to conduct international climate science into the future.

When: Tuesday, 11 December 2018, 18:15 - 19:15
