Climate Risk Profile-Marshall Islands
It is recognized by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that developing countries particularly Small Island Developing States are particularly vulnerable to climate change (IPCC AR4, 2007). The future of many of our island nations is being shaped by climate change events. The effects of climate change, and the need for concerted and coordinated action to address its effects, are no longer a matter of political debate. For some Pacific Island countries, it is a question of survival.
