A new publication of the international research center on el niño phenomenon to commemorate its fifth anniversary
The International Research Center on El Niño Phenomenon (CIIFEN) was created in January 2003, in Guayaquil, Ecuador. More than 100 climate experts representing 33 countries 19 international organizations gathered for the opening ceremony of the Center. In order to create CIIFEN, a number of partnerships were established between the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN/ISDR) and the government of Ecuador. In 2005, the government of Spain joined the initiative to support the efforts of CIIFEN’S International Directorate.
In commemoration of its fifth anniversary, CIIFEN developed a publication that includes a summary of its products and services as well as its projects, both completed and underway. The publication also includes experiences, efforts and partnerships aimed at building capacity and developing climate-related products and services that could be applied throughout Latin America.
