Title: CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY CLIMATE CHANGE CENTRE CCCCC Participation in the UNFCCC Pilot Network on Technol


1
CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY CLIMATE CHANGE CENTRE
(CCCCC) Participation in the UNFCCC Pilot Network
on Technology Information Centres
  • The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre
    (CCCCC) was designated by the governments of the
    Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to be the centre of
    excellence for the development of policy,
    technical research and the mobilization of
    financial and other resources to address climate
    change and related matters within the community.

CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY CLIMATE CHANGE CENTRE
(CCCCC) Participation in the UNFCCC Pilot
Network on Technology Information Centres
  • The CCCCC is based in Belize and was charged with
    the development of policies, strategies and
    measures to address mitigation and adaptation to
    climate change in CARICOM. The related
    technology transfer information initiatives and
    actions were included in this mandate.

CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY CLIMATE CHANGE CENTRE
(CCCCC) Participation in the UNFCCC Pilot
Network on Technology Information Centres
  • The CCCCC through its information technology
    activities (website hosting, etc.) was to be a
    regional node as part of the UNFCCC technology
    information transfer and public education and
    outreach (under Article 6) clearing house
    mechanism.

Network on Technology Information Centres
  • The CCCCC as a regional node of the technology
    information network would be better able to
    provide data and information to its clients. The
    data and information provided would be guided by
    the needs of the clients. UNFCCC and other
    support will be pursued to help us in the process.

Network on Technology Information Centres
  • The CCCCC would focus its attention more on the
    content of the network rather than on the
    technology used in operating the network. The
    network will proactively try to deliver
    information to clients, especially national
    governments, leading to policy changes in
    preparing the region to effectively adapt to CC.

CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY CLIMATE CHANGE CENTRE
(CCCCC) Participation in the UNFCCC Pilot
Network on Technology Information Centres
  • The CPACC regional project, based in Barbados,
    developed and populated a website on climate
    change for and to support practitioners and
    clients within the public and private sectors of
    the CARICOM. The website was leased/rented from
    and hosted by a private company in Barbados. The
    follow-on project Mainstreaming Adaptation to
    Climate Change (MACC) was to inherit the website
    and associated resources to be used as part of
    its support for the CCCCC.

  • MACC, a GEF funded project, was being executed by
    the CARICOM Secretariat (CCS) with the World Bank
    (WB) as implementing agency, was based in the
    CCCCC in Belize.
  • The IT and website functions of the MACC project
    were under its Public Education and Outreach
    component and was to build on and implement the
    regional and national PEO strategies developed
    under the CPACC.

  • The website and its functions continued to be
    physically managed and operated from Barbados
    instead of at the CCCCC in Belize. The MACC and
    CCCCC roles were to be that of supplying data and
    information for uploading in Barbados. This was
    unacceptable the MACC and the CCCCC as control
    over quality and administration was lost.

  • The technological and qualitative transformation
    of the site to enable it to fulfill the role of a
    regional node in line with the UNFCCC SBSTA
    guidelines was not being achieved within the
    existing framework. It was not able to provide
    access to and exchange of climate sensitive
    information and technologies to climate change
    practitioners and clients within and outside the
    CARICOM.

  • Sometime late in 2005 to early 2006 it was
    reported that the website had crashed and all
    the information and data was lost. It was not
    clear what happened to the backups but attempts
    to revive and re-populate the site seemed beset
    by technical problems. The site had not been
    revived up to August 2006 when the mid-term
    review of the project was conducted.

  • The WB and the CCS conducted the mid-term review
    of the MACC and both agreed to transfer the
    executing agency function for the MACC project
    from the CCS to the CCCCC. The transition
    process is about to be finalized following
    agreement from all the participating governments
    of the CARICOM. The executing agency role of the
    CCCCC is in line with that being performed for
    other CC related projects supported by the WB and
    other development partners.

CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY CLIMATE CHANGE CENTRE
(CCCCC) Participation in the UNFCCC Pilot

  • The MACC/CCCCC has established a new website,
    www.caribbeanclimate.bz, which came on line in
    February 2007. The rights and ownership of the
    original site name, www.caribbeanclimate.org,
    belongs to the private company and was not
    available to the CCCCC. The new site is owned
    and located within the CCCCC thus allowing for
    administrative, technical and editorial control.

  • The CCCCC will develop and manage the site to
    perform the functions of a regional node in the
    UNFCCC network by providing and exchanging
    climate friendly data and information to and with
    the Caribbean professionals, practitioners and
    the public-at-large as well as cooperators and
    partners beyond the Caribbean boundaries.

  • The MACC/CCCCC works with a number of technical
    partners and will establish linkages to exchange
    and disseminate data and information from and
    with them

  • Some of the technical partners generating
    information and data for the MACC/CCCCC include
    NOAA, Center for Marine Sciences (UWI), Caribbean
    Emergency Disaster Response Agency, Climate
    Studies Group (UWI), Department of Survey and
    Land Information (UWI), CERMES (UWI)…

  • MACC/CCCCC will provide access to data and
    information to our clients
  • National governments though their NFPs,
    ministries and departments, etc.
  • NGOs and private sector agencies
  • Knowledge based institutions
  • The public-at-large and outside agencies

  • The site is now being re-populated with data and
    information retrieved physically from individuals
    and organizations in the countries associated
    with the previous projects and activities.
    Towards this end the CCCCC has commenced
    initiatives aimed at re-establishing linkages
    with the UNFCCC process that would allow it to
    access the financial resources that were
    allocated but never accessed to carry out this
    function.
