The Pacific Islands Climate Change Forum (PICCF) is an event intended to present objective, user-relevant information about the current and future climate as well as actions that agencies, organizations and institutions are taking to reduce climate-related risks and support sustainable development over the coming decades in sectors of critical socio-economic significance. The PICCF is a special follow-on to the 10th session of the Pacific Islands Climate Outlook Forum (PICOF-10).
The purpose of Day One is to roll out the Pacific Climate Change Monitor. The Monitor is a report that draws on the latest meteorological and oceanographic data and information to describe historical variability and change in the Pacific Island climate expressed in terms of a fundamental set of indicators. The report is directed towards a regional to sub-regional scale, and it incorporates local information as warranted. While focused on documenting historical conditions, some attention is also given to projections and climate impacts. This information about the trends in physical, biological, chemical, and ecological observations due to a changing climate is intended to facilitate communication among, and inform decisions of, a broad spectrum of public and private sector stakeholders in various Pacific Island Countries.
The purpose of Day Two is to communicate the latest Pacific projections-based science and science-based climate change services that are incorporated into the Monitor. Attention will also be given to demonstrating the practical application of projections-based scientific assessments to inform hazard-based sectoral CC impact and vulnerability/risk assessments.
The purpose of Day Three is to communicate information about the observed and expected impact of CC in the Pacific within key sectors. It will include a series of storytelling sessions, where representatives from agencies, organizations and institutions within the region share lessons learned about how they are using CC-related data and information to address impacts due to a rapidly changing climate.
The audience for the PICCF is NMSs, sectors, national government policy makers/domain experts, NGOs, regional/national organizations and universities, consultants/private sector, donors and MLDBs, community groups, other researchers, knowledge brokers etc
The PICCF is co-organized by the Pacific Regional Climate Network (RCC) Node for Monitoring in partnership with the Pacific Islands Climate Services (PICS) Panel, with technical support from Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and the East West Center (EWC) Pacific Islands Development Program (PIDP). Members of the Pacific RCC include the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), APEC Climate Centre (APCC), Meteo-France, US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Pacific Community (SPC) and the University of Hawaii).
