Global Monsoons Model Intercomparison Project (GMMIP) is an important participant in the Coupled Model Inter-comparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6). Firstly, the scientific background of launching the GMMIP is introduced, emphasizing necessity and historic opportunity of this activity. Further, the general ideas of GMMIP experiment design are briefly described, as well as the three experiment tiers, experiment usage and connections with other endorsed Model Intercomparison Projects in CMIP6. Finally, we remark the scientific significance of GMMIP, highlighting its important role in elevating and amplifying the influence of monsoon modelling and research communities in China.

Key words: Global Monsoons Model Intercomparison Project (GMMIP), CMIP6, Experiment design
