Introduction

Welcome to PRECIS-CARIBE, the interactive Webpage for access to the results of the PRECIS Regional Climate Model runs for Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean. The site has been developed to facilitate online access to the climate change scenarios developed by the Cuban Meteorological Institute utilizing PRECIS.

PRECIS (Providing Regional Climates for Impacts Studies) is a PC-based regional climate model developed by the Hadley Centre of the Meteorological Office of the United Kingdom for use by non-Annex I Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The results available on the Web page represent a contribution of the Cuban Meteorological Institute (INSMET) to the activities that are being undertaken in the region to evaluate the impacts of climate change and to identify adaptation measures. This contribution was supported financially by the UNDP-CIDA Project “Development and Adaptation to Climate Change”, and the UNDP-GEF RLA/01/G31 Project, “Enhancing the Capacity for Stage II Climate Change Adaptation in Central America, Mexico and Cuba”, also known as ACCII.

Special mention must be given to Geoff Jenkins, Richard Jones, Ruth Taylor, David Hassell and David Hein of the Hadley Centre for providing the training and the follow-up support with the installation, assimilation and use of PRECIS.

We hope that the Web page will be used the way it was intended. We would appreciate feedback very much. Therefore, if you have any comments, suggestions or need more information, please write to precis.caribe@insmet.cu
