Climate prediction for small island nations

Source(s):  World Meteorological Organization (WMO)

This new publication from the World Meteorological Organization provides a wide-ranging description of how small island States and territories in the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Pacific regions are using seasonal predictions and other climate information to improve their economies and better manage their resources.

A growing number of businesses and sectors are incorporating climate services into their decision-making and planning. The coffee and honey industries in Jamaica, wind energy and agriculture in the Seychelles, tourism around the Caribbean, the sugar industry in Fiji, the renewable energy sector in Samoa, and the hydropower sector in Belize are all enthusiastic users of climate services. WMO interviewed decision-makers in each of these industries about their experiences in employing forecasts and other customized climate information.
