International Conference on Regional Climate - CORDEX 2013

4-7 November 2013

The International Conference on Regional Climate - CORDEX 2013 brings together the international community of regional climate scientists to present and discuss results from WCRP regional climate studies, with a particular emphasis on the CORDEX initiative.

The first day of the meeting will feature two important pre-conference events: a High Level Session with the participation of the European Commissioners for Research & Innovation and for Climate Action where the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) presents key findings from the IPCC Working Group I contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis. This will be followed by a Stakeholder Dialogue focusing on how science-based regional climate information can best serve the needs of regional decision-makers. Both events are open to all the conference participants.

The second segment of the conference over the following three days is organized around the key scientific results from CORDEX Phase I. A discussion on future priority research areas for the next phase of CORDEX, of other WCRP regional climate initiatives and of major funding programmes - such as the EU FP7 and the future Horizon2020 - will also take place, taking into account the recommendations from the first segment of the conference.


This land-mark event will provide a forum for assessing the following key challenges:

  • Development of regional climate change projections
  • Provision of reliable and actionable regional climate information
  • Use of regional climate information in impact, adaptation and vulnerability studies
  • Dissemination of regional climate knowledge to policy-makers and a wide range of stakeholders and decision-makers
