Hazard and Risk for Pacific Atoll Futures
This presentation emphasized the need to accelerate action for adaptation in the Pacific. It recommended the use of current science, along with quantitative future scenario modelling to understand hazards and risks for more informed decision making. Existing Pacific data portals should be built upon for assessing hazard and risk for atoll nations. An integrated approach to adaptation planning needs to be adopted that puts climate change at the center of infrastructure investments.
