Pacific RISA, Climate Adaptation Partnership for the Pacific (CAPP)
The Pacific Regional Integrated Science and Assessment (Pacific RISA) program, aka Climate Adaptation Partnership for the Pacific (CAPP), supports Pacific island and coastal communities to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate variability and change. CAPP is striving to enhance Pacific communities' abilities to understand, plan for, and respond to changing climate conditions. This RISA emphasizes the engagement of communities, governments, and businesses in developing effective policies to build resilience in key sectors such as water resource management, coastal and marine resources, fisheries, agriculture, tourism, disaster management and public health.
The primary geographic focus of the Pacific RISA climate program is the U.S. Pacific Islands (Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, and Palau), networked with Pacific regional partners located in Fiji, Samoa, New Zealand, Australia, and the US Mainland.
