Designated in: May 2017
Location:Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH), Bridgetown, Barbados
Domain of interest: Member countries of the Caribbean Meteorological Organization
Web site:

Demonstration phase has been initiated to establish the United States of America Regional Climate Centre (USRCC), following the single multi-functional RCC model to perform all the mandatory functions over a coverage area of the entire RA IV.  In addition, the proposed USRCC also seeks to identify a selection of highly recommended functions that will be most useful to the Region.

Regional Climate Outlook Forums in RA IV

The Central America Climate Outlook Forum (CACOF), under coordination of the Regional Committee of Hydraulic Resources, has been in operation for more than a decade.

The CIMH has taken the coordinating role for the Caribbean Climate Outlook Forum (CariCOF).
