Human induced climate change, and increasing climate variability, as well as other environmental issues such as land degradation threaten the ability of the Caribbean nations to meet the needs of its population for food.

To address these challenges it is important to integrate the issues of climate variability and climate change into resource use and development decisions.  

Decreasing the vulnerability of agriculture to natural climate variability is a key issue for small islands like Jamaica, and introducing seasonal forecasts into management decisions can reduce this vulnerability of agriculture to droughts and floods. 

Therefore, short and long term precipitation forecasts as well as drought monitoring products will assist in making critical decisions about the growing season for crops as well as irrigation scheduling.
