||Climate Change and Food Security in the Pacific
||This brief has been prepared for the UN Convention on Climate Change meeting in Copenhagen, December 2009, to raise awareness of the imminent impacts of
climate change on food security in Pacific island countries and territories and to urge participants to consider the importance of mainstreaming food security
in climate-related policies, strategies and programmes.
By providing a snapshot of the imminent impacts of climate change on food security in Pacific
Island Countries and Territories (PICTs), this report illustrates the need to mainstream food security
within climate change policies, strategies and programmes and the need to combat climate-related
vulnerability through the effective implementation of National Adaptation Programmes of Action
(NAPAs). It also advocates â€œclimate proofingâ€Â existing food security initiatives and broadening the
NAPA process to include all PICTs as further steps to improve food security and combat the impacts
of climate change in the region.
