The SIDS-Caribbean Project: Preparedness to Climate Variability and Global Change in Small Island Developing States of the Caribbean Region
The Finnish Government and the World Meteorological Organization officially launched the SIDSCaribbean Project in November 2000. The Project, initially planned to last three years, was based on the campus of the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology in Barbados and included Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Netherlands Antilles and Aruba, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, and Turks and Caicos Islands. The aim of the project was to develop better meteorological and climatological knowledge and improve the scientific capabilities to be used as tools for better planning for sustainable development in the Caribbean region. A steering committee and a supervisory board, chaired by the Association of Caribbean States, supplied the guidance.
