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.
(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.
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.
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.
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
