The project, which facilitated the attendance, interaction, and training of early-career scientists from developing nations in the Asia-Pacific region at the International Conference on Regional Climate – CORDEX 2016 (ICRC-CORDEX 2016) was a great success. The conference, held in Stockholm, Sweden 17-20 May 2016, was jointly organized by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institution and the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). About 90 participants, 46 of whom were from the Asia-Pacific region, were supported financially to attend the conference. The project provided Asia-Pacific region scientists with the opportunity to attend the conference and interact with the 300+ scientists from 38 nations. Participation via web streaming and Twitter made it possible for the community at large to participate and interact remotely with the conference and its participants. ICRC-CORDEX 2016 offered a platform for further capacity development, training and knowledge exchange for developing nation scientists together with the opportunity to expand existing or build new, collaborations. The conference emphasized the added value, vulnerability, impact and assessment issues, as well as the use and future of regional climate information and CORDEX results as well as the CORDEX goal to build the capacity of regional climate science in developing and transition nations.
