Towards Climate Change Resilience: Minimising loss & damage in Pacific SIDS communities
To prepare this international summary report for UNESCO’s Pacific Office, we integrated multiple workshop and research reports from five different country offices within the Pacific Islands, as well as research organisations within the region, in order to create a cohesive whole that provided quick and visual access to information for policy-makers.
We translated the technical jargon, we identified the important action points, and we determined how elements of the different reports could be displayed in a unified format to represent the region. However, it was also important for each country to retain ownership of their own data, so we also designed the report in such a way that five additional ‘country fact sheets’ could be easily extracted to provide additional national-level support.
The materials were launched at the 2017 UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) and have been used as a resource at numerous international and national meetings and workshops since, as well as the report receiving multiple citations in academic papers.
Additional services included scientific climate change research, writing a foreword and introduction, and full editing of the final publication.
