Tuesday 24 October - Lunchtime
As identified in the ' A WCRP vision for accessible, useful and realistic climate modelling systems' report there is a need for a bigger, more diverse and more cross-disciplinary climate modelling community to deliver the ambition of accessible, reliable and useful modelling systems for the world. Due to many complex factors, there is poor representation of the global South particularly in the global modelling community where the capacity to support expensive infrastructure and skills limits all but the wealthiest countries. However, with young populations, huge ambition and regionally specific expertise and insight, as demonstrated in the CORDEX domains, the global South offers huge value that must be nurtured through meaningful north-south collaboration and significant investment.
This panel discussion will bring together representatives from across the climate modelling community, capacity building experts/organisations and importantly led by the young scientists from the global South to discuss practical actions and recommendations from the short term and small scale to real game changers. We will look to share positive examples from within the WCRP community as well as some activities/initiatives that have not achieved their intended aim as we look to learn from each other.
