A report which provides critical analysis and discussion on Caribbean climate, variability and trends and projections has been released by The University of the West Indies.
The Report was produced with grant funding from the ACP-EU-CDB Natural Disaster Risk Management in CARIFORUM Countries programme (NDRM), which is funded by the European Union and managed by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
Entitled the State of the Caribbean Climate Report, the publication is one of two components of a project led by the Climate Studies Group at The UWI’s Mona Campus.
The Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology is a key project partner and contributor. Instituto de Meteorologia in Cuba also participated in aspects of its production.
It is geared towards increasing decision-makers’ basic understanding of climate variability and change, facilitating evidence-based planning and policy, and implementing prioritised actions tailored to respond to climatic threats as well as sector-specific sensitivity contexts.
