WMO Signs Agreement with International Centre for Theoretical Physics

WMO and the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) – which supports the continuing education and career development of scientists from developing countries to conduct research in various domains at the highest standards – signed a Memorandum of Understanding at a conference, marking the Centre’s 50th anniversary, in Trieste, Italy, on 6 and 7 October.

The Centre is a critical partner in the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX), a programme activity of the WMO-led World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). CORDEX is particularly important for the implementation of the GFCS. The agreement between WMO and ICTP aims to enhance cooperative activities in the fields of weather, climate and water with particular regard to research and modelling as well as capacity building in environment-related issues, especially in developing countries.

Late Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam established the Centre in 1964 through a partnership between United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Government of Italy.
