USAID to Strengthen INTEC’s Climate and Resilience Observatory


The United States government, through USAID, will be supporting the Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo (the Santo Domingo Institute of Technology, INTEC), from April 2020 to mid-2021, to strengthen the Climate and Resilience Observatory to ensure its sustainability and public access to local and regional climate information.  USAID’s total investment is of US$108,000.

With both parties’ support, information from extreme events (heat waves and drought events) will be shared and will serve as a reference and support for public, private and civil society planners as well as decision makers involved and concerned with climate change. 

In addition, the observatory is expected to serve as a training facility for university students, where they can complete their internships on the use, management and interpretation of climate data. To learn more about the observatory visit the webpage: (in Spanish).
