Climate Change in the Pacific: Scientific Assessment and New Research

Climate Change in the Pacific is a rigorously researched, peer-reviewed scientific assessment of the climate of the western Pacific region. Building on the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, this two volume publication represents a comprehensive resource on the climate of the Pacific.

VOLUME 1: REGIONAL OVERVIEW

Nasara De Nuages (Cloud Nasara)- French Version

Les îles du Vanuatu sont exposées à des conditions d’extrême sécheresse ou de pluies intenses en raison des perturbations créées par
El Niño et La Niña. Ces conditions climatiques, ajoutées à des évènements extrêmes comme des cyclones, peuvent avoir de graves conséquences sur la qualité de l’eau, l’hygiène alimentaire, les infrastructures (maisons et routes, par exemple), les moyens de subsistence et la santé. Cependant, une bonne information climatique et météorologique, des alertes et des prévisions, peuvent nous aider à anticiper et à faire face à l’évolution des risques.

Cloud Nasara - English version

The Cloud Nasara animation and this tool kit aim to increase awareness of the science of El Niño and La Niña and their impacts. The tool kit also seeks to encourage discussion around how communities, schools, organisations, government departments and businesses in Vanuatu can access forecast information from the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-hazard Department (VMGD), pro-actively communicate and work together with other stakeholders, and take early action to prepare for future El Niño and La Niña events.

The Management of Coastal Carbon Sinks in Vanuatu: Realising the Potential

It is only comparatively recently that recognition has been given to the
body of evidence showing that coastal and marine ecosystems, such
as mangroves and seagrass meadows, also contain appreciable amounts
of carbon stored in the soil and sediment that lie beneath the surface of
the seabed.
 
Until recently most people considered that the
main ecosystems that lay at the heart of climate
change adaptation and mitigation activities were
forests, peatlands and perhaps some types of

‘WE TRIED TO TELL YOU THAT!’ INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES AND CLIMATE CHANGE

in southern Vanuatu tell about the origins of the black
(Melanesian) and white (European) peoples. In one
variant of one of these, the spiritual ancestor of the
Tannese Melanesians emerged from the island’s volcano
holding a bunch of sacred and agricultural leaves in his
hand, indicating knowledge of and mastery over nature.
Shortly afterwards, a light-skinned ancestor emerged
from the volcano and disappeared overseas. This ancestral
White Man held in his hand a hammer (in other versions,

NATIONAL MALARIA STRATEGIC VISION 2007-2016-VANUATU

The main malaria vector is Anopheles farauti. Its peak biting time is early in the
evening before most people are inside their mosquito nets.
Malaria in Vanuatu is endemic in all except the islands of Aneityum and Futuna.
Transmission is seasonal with a peak in the rainy season, between December
and April.
The overall ratio of P. falciparum to P. vivax is approximately 50:50 with an
increasing trend of P. vivax especially in the southern islands. A few cases of P.

Assessment of Development Needs and Capacity Constraints in Vanuatu

The Pacific's leaders and policymakers have come to realise that continued development is premised on addressing convergent economic, environmental and social challenges. The Pacific faces a number of
challenges, with energy, food and financial shocks, persistent economic inequities, and climate and environmental issues having dramatic impacts throughout the region.
Under business as usual, these challenges will threaten recent progress made in reducing poverty and improving livelihoods. Green growth offers a development model to mitigate these issues while
