Contribute to the Database
The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre’s (CCCCC) Regional Clearinghouse Database is the region’s premier repository of information and data on climate change specific to the region. This dedicated climate change resource was first explored over a decade ago during the course of the Caribbean Planning for Adaptation to Climate Change (CPACC) project (1997 to 2001), but the current iteration was spurred by a CDB project grant (2010) and the GIZ / CIM Integrated Expert Programme (2010 - 2015). The Clearinghouse has grown steadily since its launch in 2010, from a few dozen documents to over 5, 368 digital documents as of July 2016. The rapid expansion of the database will continue as the Centre adds many new documents every month, including books, videos, national/regional strategy documents, project reports, studies and scholarly articles, among others. The expansion of the database is complemented by broad use of the facility by target audiences from across the region and internationally— namely the press, the public, project teams, consultants, experts, researchers, students, focal points, governments and partner organizations. This wide usage is evidenced by average monthly downloads of 21,600 documents between January and July, 2016.
