CMIP is coordinated by two subcommittees of the WCRP Working Group on Coupled Modelling (WGCM): the CMIP Panel and the WGCM Infrastructure Panel (WIP).

In March 2022, the CMIP International Project Office opened alongside ESA’s Climate Office at its European Centre for Space Applications and Telecommunications (ECSAT) facility in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom.

The CMIP International Project Office coordinates the project under the governance of the WCRP Working Group on Coupled Modelling (WGCM) and is part of the developing Earth System Modelling and Observations (ESMO) Core Project, which coordinates all modelling, data and observations activities across WCRP and their key partners.
