Caribbean Tourism Climatic Bulletin
The Caribbean Tourism Climatic Bulletin seeks to provide a broad overview of climate conditions and communicate tourism implications up to 6 months in advance, for use by the regional tourism (public and private sector) stakeholders.
The bulletin responds to the need to develop initiatives to enhance tourism sector Resilience to climate change, aware of the very fragile nature of the industry and its susceptibility to external shocks foremost of which are climate and weather conditions intra-regionally as well as in source markets. Designed as a quarterly publication, climate information delivered through this medium will better position the region’s tourism sector to become more resilient to climate change and extreme weather events while enhancing various aspects of tourism business operations, marketing and decision making.
Caribbean Regional Climate Centre
Climate change and increasing climate variability are having adverse effects on climate sensitive socio-economic sectors on Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS). These impacts are expected to grow in the future if appropriate cost-effective adaptation strategies are not implemented. Adapting to climate change and increasing variability requires that the best information on past, current and future climate be available to support decision-making in the Caribbean.
The goal of the Caribbean RCC is to support the region’s socio-economic development by generating suites of user defined climate products and services to inform risk-based decision-making in climate sensitive sectors at the national and regional levels across the Caribbean.
