The WCRP Academy is the research training advisory and coordination arm of the World Climate Research Program. It is the flagship activity for WCRP´s mission: “to develop, share, and apply climate knowledge that contributes to societal well-being” and works to equip current and future climate scientists with the knowledge, skills and attributes required to tackle the world’s most pressing and challenging climate research questions. The Academy is a hub which connects training providers and users of training. Inclusion within the Academy implies that the training is of high quality and, as such, is a legitimate source of training and professional and capacity development platform that is targeted to climate scientists.


In this presentation, we will introduce the Academy and our catalogue of climate science training, which collates in-house WCRP training activities and educational materials to the global science community. Further, the WCRP Academy encourages and invites all research and expert groups, academic and research institutions, government agencies and non-government organizations who provide climate science training and education to register as training providers and contribute to our online training catalogue.

The WCRP Academy is building a global community of climate researchers at all career stages to provide global networking and development opportunities to facilitate lifelong learning, global equity, and skills matching for current and future research projects.
