The International GEWEX Project Office (IGPO) is the focal point of GEWEX activities, where the actions forming the bulk of GEWEX’s mission are coordinated and carried out. At IGPO, we plan meetings, sustain new initiatives, and foster communications within our network of over 2,000 scientists. IGPO was created by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) in 1990 to support the GEWEX program and functions as part of the Joint Planning Staff of WCRP.
IGPO oversees the implementation of the GEWEX SSG’s recommendations and plays a central role in the outreach of GEWEX through its website, quarterly newsletter, and through the organization of science conferences and workshops. We provide an interface between GEWEX and other WCRP activities, and work together with other environmental and space science programs across the globe.
