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

Presentation given at the Fiji Workshop on developing national forest reference levels/reference emission levels (RL/REL) for Fiji. The presentation provides some background information on the current discussions on REDD+ and also more specifically on the discussions and current recommendations on developing reference levels/reference emission levels.

In December 2010 the Fiji Forestry Department, under the tutelage and supervision of international expert, Dr Ian Payton undertook a national forest carbon stock estimation to enable Fiji to proceed to the IPCC Tier 2 in national forest carbon monitoring. The process emphasised the capacity building of local counterparts. This Fiji Forest Carbon Inventory Report documents the outcome of national forest carbon stock estimation and presents recommendations on how to improve the national forest carbon inventory.

Vanuatu Carbon Credits Project: Vanuatu Forests – Reducing Emissions from Deforestation. Phase I Project Report No. 1

This project is designed to help build capacity in Vanuatu to utilize carbon markets to help fund REDD and associated sustainable development activities. In order to model and test a national mechanism for the use of carbon finance for REDD, it is necessary to undertake a detailed national forest cover area change assessment. Thus, this project provides essential components of a larger effort that tests a national mechanism/s for REDD and carbon markets for Vanuatu.
