World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Open Science Conference | Rwanda

Every decade, the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) brings together communities from around the world to showcase recent and significant advances in climate science, identify gaps and opportunities, and jointly develop future plans. 

The WCRP Open Science Conference has a major goal of bridging science and society. Climate risk, early warning, attribution, uncertainty, tipping points, irreversibility, and abrupt climate change are just some of the topics that will be discussed, both on a global and regional scale, as well as the fundamental science that is critical to advancing these important topics. 

Nowhere in the world are the impacts of climate change felt more than in the Global South. For the first time, WCRP will hold its Open Science Conference in Africa to further develop mutual understanding and explore opportunities and challenges of the continent. The conference will be hosted by the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) at the Kigali Convention Centre, on behalf of the Government of Rwanda.
