WCRP Open Science Conference 2023

This conference is a once-in a decade opportunity for our communities to come together and jointly explore the transformative actions urgently needed to ensure a sustainable climate.

The WCRP Open Science Conference will bring together 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.

For the first time WCRP will hold its Open Science Conference in Africa, to facilitate global engagement with research communities, stakeholders and practitioners in Rwanda and the region. The conference will be hosted by the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) at the Kigali Convention Centre, on behalf of the Government of Rwanda.

We anticipate 1500 delegates on site and an equal number connecting remotely. Scientists, practitioners, politicians, policy makers, intergovernmental agencies and NGOs are invited to showcase their work, learn from each other, and explore new ways to work together.

Come join us to learn about the new WCRP, share your ideas, and meet with colleagues from around the world.
