Pacific Guidance and Case Studies

This section of the portal provides access to a range of resources to help you find and transform climate model data into future climate information products to inform adaptation planning.

Introduction to risk assessment for decision-makers

For evidence-based, sector-specific climate change hazard identification, vulnerability and impact assessment, it is important for decision-makers to focus on the most important information needs and not get overwhelmed by technical detail. It is also important to systematically address the issues in order from high to low priority. [Read more]

Developing climate change information

These guidelines broadly outline steps for identifying, developing and applying climate change information as part of a staged risk assessment process, and provides advice and resources for undertaking each step. [Read more]

Case studies

Case studies have been developed to demonstrate how climate change information can be used for climate risk assessments, climate hazard-based impact assessments and adaptation planning in the Pacific. Each case study is aligned with the guidelines for developing climate change information, so provide step-by-step guidance on the application of these guidelines. [Read more]

Understanding climate change science

When conducting climate risk assessments, it is important to have a working understanding of fundamental climate change science terms and concepts. [Read more]

Tools and resources for planning ahead

There are many resources available to help undertake climate risk assessments in the Pacific. These include climate science tools and portals, and additional resources for understanding climate variability and change in the Pacific. [Read more]

Resource Library

The resource library contains links to a range information products, knowledge resources and tools that can be used for climate change adaptation and resilience planning. [Read more]
