As a part of its efforts to improve climate data in the region, the Regional Track PPCR project has supported the acquisition of a high-performance computer system that will provide regional and country-level climate projection models and high-resolution maps for the Caribbean. The system -Scientific Platform for Applied Research and Knowledge Sharing (SPARKS) -is housed at the University of the West Indies’ (UWI), Mona campus.
The UWI Climate Studies Group is the co-implementing partner working on the project component which will improve the availability of downscaled future climate projections for the region to support adaptation planning, decision making and sectoral modeling and projections.
This short video, produced for the launch of SPARKS, explains why the system is so important for the Caribbean.
