Proceedings of 2nd Fiji Conservation Science Forum

A free lecture will be given this afternoon by Gillian Cambers of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community.

The talk will be based on the recently published findings of the Pacific Climate Change Science Program, a three year study which was undertaken by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO in collaboration with national meteorological services of Pacific Island countries and territories.

The findings are published in a two volume peer-reviewed report “Climate Change in the Pacific: Scientific Assessment and New Research” and can be accessed at: http://www.cawcr.gov.au/projects/PCCSP/publications.html. The first volume of the report provides a regional overview, while the second volume provides individual reports for each of the 15 countries. This includes climate projections for Cook Islands, East Timor, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

Please come to listen and discuss – Thursday 1st March 2012, at 16:30 in the Veitiri Conference Room, IUCN Office, 5 Ma’afu Street, Suva.
