Strategies and on the ground options for climate change adaptation and disaster risk management in the Pacific

Projects discussed: (i) the Pacific Islands Climate Change Assistance Programme (PICCAP); (ii) the Capacity Building for the Development of Adaptation Measures in Pacific Island Countries (CBDAMPIC); (iii) the Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change (PACC) project; and (iv) the Pacific DRR and Disaster Risk Management Partnership Network.
