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.
