Project Description

The First International Conference on Chemical Weather and Chemical Climate (CWCC) will be held in Shanghai, China, from 16 to 20 October, 2023.

The conference focuses on Science, Risks, Impacts, Health, and Governance Associated with Multi-scale Climate and Environmental Perturbations, which are highly relevant to achieving carbon neutrality, social and economic sustainability, and planetary health. Recognizing the intricate interdependencies between climate change, air quality, and health, and their profound implications for mitigation and adaptation, this conference is a collaborative effort between international organizations, government agencies, researchers and practitioners, and public and private sectors.

About 800-1000 participants are anticipating, the conference highlights will be compiled and published as special issues in peer-review journals.

Conference Chairs
– Renhe Zhang, Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Vice-present of Fudan University
– Guy Brasseur, the Member of European Science Academy, Senior Professor of the Max-Planck Institute of Meteorology, Germany; Co-chair of Monitoring, Analysis, Prediction of Air Quality (MAP-AQ) Project, supported by World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) Project
– Juerg Luterbacher, Chief Scientist and Director of Department of Science and Innovation, WMO

The following topics will be covered at the conference:
– Emissions and physical-chemical transformations of atmospheric components
– Simulation and forecasting of chemical weather/climate and its impacts
– Environmental and health impact of air quality, climate change, and weather/climate extremes
– Strategies for reducing inequities
– Towards mitigation and adaptation to environmental changes
– Towards the development of climate-smart and sustainable cities
– Coordinative pathways for climate-environment-health governance
– Coordinative pathways for climate-environment-carbon neutrality governance
– Global partnerships for crosscutting approaches and collaboration with stakeholders
