The information is also relevant to all Pacific Island countries and territories.
The visual guide has 16 pictures showing the water cycle, Pacific and global climate, causes of climate change, the changing climate of six Pacific island countries and mitigation and adaptation in a town and in gardening, forestry and fishing.
