SPREP, 17th July 2018
On Tuesday, 17 July 2018, the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme’s (SPREP) launched their new online decision support tools for climate change during the IMPACT Regional Workshop at SPREP’s Headquarters in Apia, Samoa.
These decision support tools will add to the functionality of SPREP’s Pacific Climate Change Portal [https://www.pacificclimatechange.net/], the go-to hub for Pacific climate change information. The tools were developed through the Pacific iCLIM Project, which is a collaboration between SPREP and Griffith University, and funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The project’s main object is to support the regional management of climate change information in the Pacific.
In opening the launch, Ms Tagaloa Cooper Halo, Director of Climate Change Resilience Programme (SPREP) stated that, "SPREP has been working very closely with Griffith University to scope and develop both decision support tools. These tools are designed to help Pacific countries navigate climate change adaptation and finance, and we are very excited to be launching them today."
