Key CTA Briefing to push climate change and green growth agenda in the Pacific

Climate change is already disproportionally affecting the islands of the Pacific. Although islanders have done little to contribute to the causes of climate change – less than 0.03% of current global greenhouse gas emissions – they are among the first to be exposed to a range of environmental, social and economic effects. Most islands are experiencing impacts on community livelihoods, infrastructure, water supply, coastal and forest ecosystems, fisheries, agriculture, and human health. The consequences of sea level rise, sea temperature increases, ocean acidification, altered rainfall patterns, and overall temperature rise will be increasingly felt.
In this context, policy-makers, researchers, civil society groups, and development partners will gather in Port Vila, Vanuatu next week (31 October – 2 November 2012) to address these issues in a special briefing session organized by the ACP-EU Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Development (CTA), in partnership with the Government of Vanuatu, with the support of the Embassy of Vanuatu to the EU and the ACP, and Pacific Group of Ambassadors.
