The specific activities that CliC undertakes are intended to address particular scientific issues that have been identified and for which some international coordinated effort could yield tangible progress. These targeted activities are prioritized and approved by the SSG, and are intended to be limited in scope and lifetime (typically on the order of 3 to 5 years). They are led by an individual scientist or group of scientists who are responsible for coordinating the activity and reporting on progress. The CliC project office (ICPO) provides funding for workshops and meetings provides logistic support (e.g. meeting arrangements, video- and teleconference facilities, web pages, etc.). In some cases these activities are overseen by one of the working groups or fora. 
The Polar Climate Predictability Initiative (PCPI), which is jointly organized by CliC and SPARC, is comprised of a complementary set of targeted activities which are described in more detail in the PCPI implementation strategy.
