The Regional Coastal Integrated Information Management System (RCIIMS) is an online platform of metadata aimed at supporting climate analysis and national and regional climate planning activities. RCIIMS is currently being piloted for Dominica, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The platform has been created under the Caribbean Regional Track of the Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience (PPCR) executed by the Mona Office for Research and Innovation (MORI) of the University of the West Indies (UWI) with funding provided by the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) and administered by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

The PPCR was designed under the Strategic Climate Fund (SCF), in response to the urgent need to scale up investments in climate risk and resilience measures for highly vulnerable countries, to pilot and demonstrate ways to integrate climate risk and resilience into their core development planning. The Caribbean Regional Track of the PPCR arose from this and is designed to work through key entities in the Caribbean region to provide the scientific analysis so that countries can incorporate climate resilience into their national climate change strategies as well as in regional planning strategies, policies and financing mechanisms. The PPCR engaged a consulting firm, Blue Earth Consultants, a Division of ERG, to lead the research on the requirements for and the development of the RCIIMS, which will serve as a tool for supporting ongoing national PPCR programs, climate analysis, and adaptation planning regionally.
