Pacific leaders continue to call for assistance as they strive to understand, predict, and adapt to a changing climate. Pacific island states are some of the most vulnerable in the world to climate change; recognizing this, several Pacific island states were key members of the High Ambition Coalition at the Conference of Parties 21 in Paris. The development and delivery of actionable information about climate patterns and trends – and their impacts on communities, businesses and ecosystems – is essential to many aspects of policy, planning, and decision-making. Consultation between technical assistance providers, communities and decision makers is critical to ensuring such information is useful, useable and used. Please join May’s speakers, Britt Parker and Dr. John Marra of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), as they share approaches and outcomes from a two year program to support climate change adaptation in the Pacific Islands, including the development of a climate services storybook that provides case studies for decision-makers.
