Climate Change

Small islands, whether located in the tropics or higher latitudes, have characteristics which make them especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, sea-level rise, and extreme events (very high confidence) ♦  Sea-level rise is expected to exacerbate inundation, storm surge, erosion and other coastal hazards, thus threatening vital infrastructure, settlements and facilities that support the livelihood of island communities (very high confidence). ♦  There is strong evidence that under most climate change scenarios, water resources in small islands are likely to be seriously compromised (very high confidence). ♦  It is very likely that subsistence and commercial agriculture on small islands will be adversely affected by climate change (high confidence). IPCC 4th Assessment Report, 2007

In 2011 the SPC/GIZ programme expanded in scope to include fisheries, tourism, energy and education components in addition to the existing land based natural resource sectors. It also expanded in coverage, continuing work with the three countries that received initial support - Fiji, Tonga and Vanuatu - to cover an additional nine countries - namely, the Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.

This short presentation gives an overview of the structure, objectives and indicators of the expanded SPC/GIZ 'Coping with Climate Change in the Pacific Islands Region' Programme.
