The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) hosted the Caribbean Launch of The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on October 13, 2014 at 6pm (-4 GMT).

The public education event, which was held at the Frank Collymore Hall, Central Bank of Barbados, is intended to raise the profile of Climate Change as a key development challenge in the Region, and the high degree of scientific certainty surrounding the predictions about our changing and variable climate.

The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre

The two dozen island nations of the Caribbean, and the 40 million people who live there, are in a state of increased vulnerability to climate change. Higher temperatures, rises in sea level, and increased hurricane intensity threaten lives, property and livelihoods throughout the region.


The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre coordinates the Caribbean region’s response to climate change, working on effective solutions and projects to combat the environmental impacts of climate change and global warming. It provides climate change-related policy advice and guidelines to the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Member States through the CARICOM Secretariat and to the UK Caribbean Overseas Territories and is archive and clearing house for regional climate change data and documentation.


Guided by the CARICOM regional framework for Achieving Development Resilient to Climate Change and its implementation plan, the Centre and the region are planing for climate   compatible development in the Caribbean.
