The Pacific Adventures of the Climate Crab and Cloud Nasara animations aim to increase awareness of the science and impacts of climate variability in the Pacific, and to provoke discussion around how communities can access forecast information and take ‘low regrets’ actions to prepare for future El Niño and La Niña events and adapt to climate change.
- The Pacific Adventures of the Climate Crab gives an overview of climate processes and impacts in the Pacific region as a whole.
- Cloud Nasara is specifically focused on Vanuatu as a pilot country.
The films are useful for organisations, government, schools, and community groups in Pacific countries and for regional bodies across the Pacific. They are accompanied by a comprehensive resource tool kit and may assist those working in areas such as disaster risk management, health, food security, community planning, and environmental protection.
The animations are the result of an innovative collaboration between Red Cross, the Australian Government’s Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning Program (PACCSAP), the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-hazards Department (VMGD) and GIZ.
