The workshop is part of the Caribbean Weather Impacts Group (CARIWIG)’s effort to initiate and sustain consultations to determine community needs for the generation of quantitative climate information for climate impact assessments and the broader decision-making process in the Caribbean.

The stakeholder consultation will focus on some of the region’s economic lifelines: the water, agriculture and coastal resource sectors. The discussions will shape the course of the CARIWIG Project, which seeks to create tools that will enable the region to reliably access locally relevant unbiased climate change information in a manner that complements their planning cycle.

The CARIWIG project is funded by the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN ) and will be carried out in partnership with the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (Belize), University of East Anglia (UK), University of the West Indies (Jamaica) and the Institute of Meteorology (Cuba).
