World Climate Research Programme: Climate Research for the 21st Century: From Challenges and Opportunities to Implementation

Since its inception 40 years ago, the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) has played a unique role in facilitating the analysis and prediction of the Earth system variability and change with its mission to determine to what extent climate can be predicted and the extent of human influence on climate. Climate science has evolved substantially since then, through advances in fundamental science and innovation in observations and simulations. Everything from satellites to supercomputers have revolutionized our understanding and prediction of the climate with ever-increasing skill. Climate science now engages many different disciplines towards an integrated Earth system approach.
During the session past successes and open question of the WCRP will be summarized, and new WCRP science direction will be presented together with first thoughts on how to structure WCRP in support of future science challenges. The audience will also be engaged in a dialogue about the future WCPR structure.
