ABOUT THE CARIBBEAN TOURISM-CLIMATIC BULLETIN
The Tourism-Climatic Bulletin (TCB) is a new operational tool jointly developed and disseminated by the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) and the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH) to help the tourism sector manage climate risk and take advantage of climate opportunities in an interactive and compact online document.
The TCB provides a broad overview of climate conditions (how wet, how dry, how hot etc.) in the Caribbean and source markets (in North America and Europe) and communicates implications for the tourism sector 3 months in advance.
It offers tailored advice using climate information for the Caribbean and source markets that can help tourism businesses and policymakers identify and prepare for favourable or inclement climate conditions in the Caribbean and source markets, before they occur.
Use of this tailored climate early warning information can inform strategic and operational decisions related to the use of environmental resources, marketing, and enhancement of the visitor experience.
