The Republic of Korea-Pacific Islands Climate Prediction Service Phase 2 (ROK-PI CliPS-2) is a climate prediction information project for climate change capacity building of the Pacific Islands region.
The ROK-PI CliPS-2 project is funded by the Government of Korea through the Pacific Island Forum Secretariat (PIFS), and implemented by the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) with support from APEC Climate Center (APCC).
The main objective of the project is to increasing the resilience of the Pacific Islands through strengthening their capacity for the utilization of high quality climate prediction information – The project aims to build the resilience of the Pacific Islands to climate change through the strengthening of the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHS) capacity to contribute to community resilience and national development planning. The tailored region-specific climate prediction system developed during the ROK PI CliPS project, will be updated and enhanced.
This initiative will build on previous activities such as the ROK PI CliPS project completed in 2017, and work in partnership with current relevant activities such as those implemented by the Pacific Meteorological Desk (Pac Met Desk) Partnership and the Climate, Oceans Support Programme for the Pacific (COSPPac) Project based at SPREP.
Beneficiary Countries: Cook Islands, FSM, Fiji, Kiribati, RMI, Nauru, Niue, Palau, PNG, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu.
