This collection contains outputs from the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) programme.
The PACCSAP programme (2011-2015) supported 14 Pacific Island countries to build resilience to current and future climate risks through improved science and data, increased awareness of climate change and its impacts, and better adaptation planning. It delivered a range of successful projects with country governments, regional organisations and other development partners.
The programme responded to the serious and immediate challenges Pacific Islands face from the impacts of climate change, and the need for climate data and information in the Pacific region. It built on the success of the earlier Pacific Adaptation Strategy Assistance Program (PASAP) and Pacific Climate Change Science Program (PCCSP), and ran concurrently with the East Timor Climate Change Science Program.
PACCSAP was implemented by the Australian Department of the Environment in partnership with CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM). It was funded from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) aid budget.
