International GEWEX Project Office (IGPO)

IGPO is the locus of GEWEX activities, coordinating and carrying out the actions that form the bulk of GEWEX’s mission. 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 assist with collaboration between GEWEX projects and related scientific efforts. IGPO functions as part of the Joint Planning Staff of WCRP.

IGPO is hosted by the Universities Space Research Association and operated in conjunction with the Science and Technology Corporation. The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration is the primary sponsor of IGPO.
