The Pacific Climate Change Portal was developed by the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme, in collaboration with its partners.
Regional and national institutions in the Pacific Island region hold a substantial amount of climate change‐related information and tools. The Pacific Climate Change Portal aims to ensure this information is readily accessible in a coordinated and user-friendly manner.
The portal provides a platform for institutions and governments in the Pacific region to share information that can be readily accessed by linking to information repositories such as the Pacific Islands Global Ocean Observing System.
The Pacific Climate Change Portal will improve and strengthen understanding of climate change issues by a greater number of people in the Pacific region. Improved access to information will strengthen communication and collaboration to cope with climate change regionally and locally. This portal is also anticipated to leverage more climate change initiatives and innovation in Pacific Island Countries and Territories.
The major target groups expected to use the portal are national stakeholders (PICTs), regional stakeholders (CROP agencies) and development partners. A broader audience, however, is not excluded.
