Climate projections are elaborated within international collaborations between research organisations that are referred to as projects or experiments. The two major ones are:

  • CMIP5, which stands for Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 5, on which the last IPCC report relies upon, and 
  • CORDEX for Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment. In short, CORDEX is a high resolution version of the CMIP5 limited to some specific regions.
