Review of economic and livelihood impact assessments of, and adaptation to, climate change in Melanesia

Source(s):  Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP)

This institutional and socio-economic assessment report addresses the effects of climate change in the Pacific examined from a perspective broader than just biodiversity. The report focuses on the economic costs of climate change, climate variability and sea level rise in the Pacific, including Melanesia, and the knowledge gaps on the economic cost of climate change, key adaptation strategies to strengthening socio-economic resilience, data requirements for strengthening evidence-based adaptation to climate change and capacity development needs for strengthening resilience to climate change.

This Melanesia project report is part of a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation initiative to help understand better adaptation strategies suited to local circumstances, which are based on local information, good governance and through the strengthening of conservation practices.
