Points of Contact

WCRP Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX)

The CORDEX vision is to advance and coordinate the science and application of regional climate downscaling through global partnerships. CORDEX includes 14 domains, regions for which regional downscaling is taking place and which have an official CORDEX designation. In order to achieve the CORDEX vision Points of Contact (POC) in each of the domains play a significant role with responsibilities including what is listed below.

 

Terms of reference for Points of Contact (POC)

  • to serve as Point of Contact for all relevant CORDEX matters in the region

 

  • to foster cooperation and communication on CORDEX and regional climate modeling matters in the region

 

  • to coordinate CORDEX activities (workshops, training activities, etc) and associated public outreach (news, web page, social media, etc) in the region

 

  • to support resource mobilization in the region with relevant stakeholders (development banks, funding agencies, donors, etc)

 

  • to liaise between and within the various CORDEX regions, under the guidance of the CORDEX SAT and CORDEX Project Office.

 

  • at the latest December 15 every year report to the SAT and CORDEX Project Office on activities carried out during the year

 

  • at the latest December 15 every year send a list to CORDEX Project Office on activities planned for the coming year.
