Climate Data for the Environment (CliDE) is a climate database management system installed in partner country National Meteorological Services to support day-to-day operations, including the archival and basic analysis of historical and recent meteorological data.

CliDE provides a platform for countries to rescue and secure hard copy data, which in some countries date back more than 100 years. Accurate climate records are critical for building an understanding of how the climate is changing and for verifying climate projections, monitoring and comparing droughts and other extreme events.

CliDE will improve the availability of data for National Meteorological Services, other government agencies and researchers.

Relationship to other tools:

The Climate Data for the Environment tool captures observational data that are periodically incorporated into the Pacific Climate Change Data Portal.

Who can use it:

CLiDE is used by the National Meteorological Services of each of the PACCSAP program’s partner countries.
