Programme for building regional climate capacity in the Caribbean

Donors:
  • U.S. Agency for International Development/The Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA)
Project Partners:
  • Caribbean Institute for Meteorology & Hydrology (CIMH)

The project aims at establishing a sustainable Regional Climate Centre (RCC) for the Caribbean housed at the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH). By developing and distributing climate and weather products and services, the RCC will support adaptation to climate variability and change and enhance disaster risk reduction capacities in the Region.

WMO RCCs are centres of excellence that create regional products including long-range forecasts that support regional and national climate activities, thereby strengthening the capacity of WMO Members to deliver better climate services.
