WCRP Strategic Plan Cover
The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) is developing a new strategic plan, covering a 10-year time horizon (2019-2028). It is being developed by the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee of 2018 and is due to be completed at the end of 2019. 
The WCRP Strategic Plan is now at the final draft stage, awaiting approval of the WCRP Sponsors. In these pages we give the schedule for plan development, outline progress made and provide the final draft of the WCRP Strategic Plan 2019-2028 for download.

Please note that the WCRP Strategic Plan addresses long-term, high-level goals. The possible new structure of WCRP and other detailed organizational issues will be considered as part of the WCRP Implementation Plan. The WCRP Implementation Plan will outline how the Strategic Plan will be achieved - a roadmap for the transition to a Programme that is equipped to meet the ongoing challenges of the future. Development of the WCRP Implementation Plan is scheduled for 2019.

Both the WCRP Strategic Plan and WCRP Implementation Plan are informed by the external Review of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) of 2018, chaired by Professor Dame Julia Slingo.
