Regional Climate Centres Implementation in North America, Central America and the Caribbean
There has been a strong interest in the establishment of WMO Regional Climate Centres (RCCs) in the Regional Association IV (North America, Central America and the Caribbean), but concrete actions are yet to be initiated towards the implementation of RCCs.
Countries in North America, namely Canada, Mexico, and the United States are moving forward with the establishment of the North America Climate Services Partnership (NACSP). The Partnership provides a mechanism for sharing data, information, concepts, and knowledge on climate services between Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The NACSP can be framed as an initiative that addresses issues unique to North America and that could contribute to and complement, rather than supersede, other existing regional and global efforts including WMO RCCs.
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).
