CASTRIES, Saint Lucia, Jan 31 2017 – The Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) has facilitated an interactive national dialogue in support of specifying climate services for the agricultural sector.
The dialogue aimed to provide guidance on climate services and products being generated by the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH) to improve the utility of products to intended users at the national level.
“This dialogue is important to the continued efforts of IICA in Saint Lucia in supporting resilience of farmers and agricultural systems to the potentially harmful effects of a changing climate”, said Brent Theophile, IICA national specialist in Saint Lucia.
The activity was convened as a follow-up action to participation by the IICA Delegation in Saint Lucia in the Caribbean Climate Outlook Forum (CariCOF) meeting held on December.
