Pacific Islands Climate Change Virtual Library

Metadata Updated: September 19, 2023

The Virtual Library provides access to web based climate variability and climate change information and tools relevant to the Pacific Islands including case studies, guidebooks, and methodologies for assessing vulnerabilities. Decision makers and managers developing adaptation plans or incorporating the implications of climate into planning and decision making for water resources, conservation, land use planning, hazard management and other activities will find the resources of value. The Forum fosters communication among regional decision makers and agencies and organizations producing climate change information and resources to allow collaboration on the science and solutions to adapt to climate change. The site was originally developed for coastal decision makers in Samoa and American Samoa; however decision makers throughout the Pacific Islands region will find this site of value.
