Kigali Declaration: Climate science for a sustainable future for all

The Kigali Declaration, one of the biggest outcomes of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP)’s Open Science Conference 2023, calls for immediate climate action, amplification of the relevance and benefits of climate research to society, and increased accessible and equitable investments towards climate mitigation.  

With 734 signatories, the majority of whom were conference participants, the Declaration is the collective voice of the participants of the Open Science Conference. The aim of the conference was to discuss the present state and the future evolution of climate science, and the actions urgently required to mitigate against and adapt to climate change. The participants acknowledged that human-induced climate change and other human impacts on the environment are among the major reasons behind the polycrises and rising inequalities currently faced by the world.
