Pacific climate change science

Small island developing countries are among the most vulnerable to climate change.

During this century, these countries will face increasing threats to sustainable development from the impacts of climate change. Sectors which are likely to be most affected include human health, infrastructure, coastal resources, disaster management, fresh water availability, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, marine ecosystems and tourism.

Through the Pacific Climate Change Science Program (PCCSP) and Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) program, the Australian Government provided tools and knowledge to 15 Pacific island countries to enhance their capacity to deal with a changing climate.

This website provides access to the key resources and tools developed through these programs.
