Reasearch and Teaching for Climate Action

Several departments of the University of the West Indies (Jamaica) work on climate; research varies from downscaling models to improve regional predictions to estimating disaster risk due to meteorological hazards and providing advice to the agricultural sector on adaptation to climate change. Activities take place on all campuses and several faculty members are authors for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Advice is provided to regional and national governments and climate is a major part of research and teaching.
