The Cuban Institute of Meteorology (INSMET) has a decisive impact on the socioeconomic development of the country, as it provides authoritative, reliable and accurate weather and climate information, based on an early warning system, which prevents the loss of human lives and mitigates damages caused by natural disasters.

Attached to the Environment Agency and founded on October 12, 1965, INSMET is located on the town of Casablanca’s hill, bordering the Bay of Havana, where in 1908 the National Observatory was located.
