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).

SPC/GIZ BMU-ICI inception report cover

SPC/GIZ Regional REDD+ BMU-ICI Programme Inception Workshop and Regional REDD+ Strategy Framework Development Report

This report documents the results of the Inception Workshop for the SPC/GIZ project entitled: “Climate protection through forest conservation in the Pacific Island Countries” funded by the International Climate Initiative (ICI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The overarching project goal is: The conservation of forest ecosystems in the Pacific island countries is supported in order to mitigate climate change and preserve biodiversity.

The workshop was held in Suva, Fiji from 22 – 24 November 2010 and brought together delegates and stakeholders from the four participating countries (Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and Fiji) to discuss and deliberate on the establishment of the new regional project and develop a strategic framework and preliminary operational plan for the project
