People read about climate change every day and we are all familiar with it as a concept. While we understand that steps need to be taken to address the risks; its impact often feels harder to imagine. We assume that the impacts are something we will experience in the future.
But in the Pacific, the impacts are already being felt by communities, and this came across clearly through our work on the Climate Vulnerability Assessment – Making Fiji Climate Resilient report, which our team worked to support the Fijian Government to produce the report, which was launched at COP23.
Working with the Government of Fiji, and a wide range of experts across a broad range of sectors really brought the story of climate change to life, making the impact on the everyday lives of Fijian’s clearer to the team. — blog.wb.org/blogs
