The International Conference on Regional Climate - Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment 2023 (ICRC-CORDEX 2023), to be held in
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy (Main Hub) and Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM),
Pune, India (India Hub) during the 25th-29th September 2023, will bring together the international regional climate research community,
focusing on high resolution climate information and its applications to vulnerability, impacts and adaptation and the full spectrum of potential
end users of regional climate information. It will promote the CORDEX vision to advance and coordinate the science and application of regional
climate downscaling through global partnerships.
There is an increasing need for reliable regional climate information that is both scientifically rigorous but also communicated in a manner to which
all potential end users. The CORDEX community is working towards meeting this challenge as part of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and
in collaboration with other global change initiatives and partners across the world.
A further goal of CORDEX is to build the capacity of regional climate science in developing and transitioning regions; great steps have been made but
there is still much work to be done. ICRC-CORDEX 2023 offers a platform for further capacity development, training, and knowledge exchange for developing
nation scientists together with the opportunity to expand existing, or build new, collaborations.
