Estimating nature’s value to Pacific islands

Rural communities in Pacific small island developing states (SIDS), which rely directly and acutely on nature’s goods and services for food and material, face a range of interlinking threats to their management of natural resources. These threats are exacerbated by climate change related risks and occur against the backdrop of rapid social and economic transition.

Benefits of agricultural extension programmes as climate adaptation

Investments in island-scale agricultural extension programmes can help small-scale farmers reduce the risks of innovating with new techniques and crop variants as a response to environmental change. These programmes can reduce harvesting pressure on forests and coastal reefs, protecting these ecosystems as buffers against the impacts of climate change.
