RIFA is collaborating with local experts in the Pacific to co-design a climate information dashboard.
This tool brings climate information and local expert knowledge together to support decision-makers in the Pacific Region.
Such approach facilitates the provision of readily available, nourishing, and safe food in light of the challenges posed by the changing climate.
Climate impacts food production, availability, quality and access across the Pacific.
With too much, or not enough information on future climate risk,
Pacific leaders face a challenge to plan and invest in resilient food and agriculture.
A climate dashboard is being developed to support decisions.
It brings together information about future climate events,
Likely risks to agriculture and food
And existing factors that can increase or reduce those risks supporting Pacific leaders to plan and strengthen climate action… For sustainable food and nutrition security.
