Pacific climate change

Climate change is already having an impact on poor communities in developing countries. Least developed countries are most vulnerable to climate change, and for the low-lying islands of the Pacific, the effects on families and communities can be devastating.

Save Tuvalu, save the world: the climate crisis and the Pacific

Pacific Island countries have long recognised the climate crisis as the greatest threat to their futures. Drawing on the region’s strengths, values and a united Pacific voice, Pacific Island countries have sought to lead by example – making bold national commitments, playing a major role in international negotiations, and holding their bigger neighbours – Australia and New Zealand – to account.

This document provides a background briefing for the 50th Pacific Islands Forum, Tuvalu, 12-16 August 2019.

After Paris - Climate finance in the Pacific Islands

Pacific island countries are working hard to address the escalating realities of climate change, including the impact on land, livelihoods, and on the food and water security of their most vulnerable communities. The need for accessible, predictable, adequate and appropriate financial support to meet the climate crisis is urgent and growing.

This report takes stock of the climate risks facing the Pacific region, and considers these risks in relation to commitments under the Paris Agreement, the complex nature of existing financial flows, current commitments from Australia and New Zealand, and the range of challenges that must be overcome to ensure support reaches those most in need.
