The documents were signed last week by Celso Pazos, head of INSMET, and Edilberto Bolívar Esquivel, Panamanian director of Hydrometeorology, who both said the alliance promotes studies of variability and climate forecasting to develop new applications for health, energy and food and nutrition security.
Esquivel, who is also Permanent Representative of Panama to the World Meteorological Organization, recalled that climate change is a reality, so it is necessary to get ready in all areas of knowledge.
He lauded Cuba’s scientific potential, stating that his country is interested in further learning and increasing the capabilities of both nations in economically productive activities.
Among the objectives of the current agreement is the development of educational and research programs at the international level, the exchange of experts, and quality control and management of hydro-meteorological variables.
