OCEANIA UNSPECIFIED/Adapting to climate change in Oceania/S-E Asia

Description

The Project provides National Meteorological Services of the Pacific Island Countries more capacity and tools to deliver and communicate accurate, appropriate and timely weather and climate services to their rural communities. The Project works together with the communities to strengthen their ability to use meteorological information to develop plans to address disasters and climate change. Overall objective of the Project is to reduce vulnerability of 14 Pacific Island Countries' livelihoods to the effects of climate change. The weather services are easy to use and understand, so the villagers know how to prepare themselves in extreme weather conditions and know what to do in threatening weather conditions. Contingency planning on the islands is done together with local governments, non-governmental organizations and local communities. The coordinating authority is SPREP (Secretariat of the Pacific Region Environmental Programme). Representatives of the National Meteorological Services of the Pacific Island Countries have been involved in the preparation of the Project. The Project was accepted in the meeting of the World Meteorological Organization in Marshall Islands in August 2011. All leaders of the National Meteorological Services of the Pacific Island Countries attended this meeting.
