Pacific Climate Futures

Pacific Climate Futures is an online tool that aids the selection of climate projections for impact assessments and adaptation planning. It allows for consideration of projections for two climate variables at the same time (e.g. temperature and rainfall) and displays the results by model consensus.

The tool provides varying levels of access (basic to advanced) to projections data and enables users to develop a range of plausible ‘climate futures’ for a particular country, along with an ability to evaluate the individual model outputs to determine which one most appropriate for the intended application.

Online training resources are also provided for basic and intermediary users, but for advanced applications users require face-to-face training. More information is available on the Pacific Climate Futures website.
