Event International Conference on Regional Climate - CORDEX 2013, A partnership between WCRP, the European Commission and IPCC

The International Conference on Regional Climate - CORDEX 2013 will facilitate active dialogue and discussion among the diverse international regional climate downscaling, and vulnerability, impact and adaptation research communities to address cross-cutting challenges and opportunities to further improve our understanding of regional climate variability and change, and to support climate adaptation and mitigation policies. WCRP would like to recruit and actively engage early career scientists, especially those from the regions that are most vulnerable to climate change and variability.

Specifically, the conference aims to:

  • Appraise the current state of regional climate downscaling science
  • Strengthen the synergies and cohesiveness within CORDEX regions and with other regional climate research initiatives
  • Identify key opportunities and challenges in observations, modeling and analysis of regional climate
  • Translate regional climate science into actionable information
  • Engage close dialogue between the modeling and end-users communities
  • Highlight priority research in support of the UN Global Framework for Climate Services
  • Prepare the grounds for future IPCC assessment reports
