Since the 3rd World Water Forum (Kyoto, 2003) the Caribbean and Pacific region have been collaborating as part of the global Dialogue on Water and Climate (DWC) initiative, which works »to improve the capacity in water resources management to cope with the impacts of increasing variability of the world's climate, by establishing a platform through which policymakers and water resources managers have better access to, and make better use of, information generated by climatologists and meteorologists« (www.waterandclimate.org).
