Providing Regional Climates for Impact Studies (PRECIS) has been used to assist the development of climate change scenarios in regions around the world, whilst utilizing existing climate expertise and improving domestic capacity. PRECIS regional climate models (RCMs) enable countries to adequately assess their vulnerability to climate change and plan adaptive measures.
