REPORT ON ADAPTATION CHALLENGES IN PACIFIC ISLAND COUNTRIES
This report is a case study which outlines current activities being undertaken in
the region on adaptation. The report includes basic outlines of national priorities,
activities implemented or planned in response, challenges and constraints, and
successes and lessons learned.
The purpose of this report is to contextualize the adaptation challenges in Paciﬁc
Island countries for audiences that are not so familiar with the region, to highlight
the eﬀorts of the region in seeking to address climate change adaptation (using
the Paciﬁc Adaptation to Climate Change (PACC) project as an example) and
to note the continuing challenges that the region faces. The report includes a
discussion on how the PACC project has sought to address emerging issues.
It is speciﬁcally for a Paciﬁc audience, primarily climate change oﬃcials, as well as
community and local government actors interested in or active in climate change
adaptation. The report will be distributed by electronic means primarily, with a
small print run.
