Preliminary Climate and Sea Level Changes for Vanuatu Through the Application of SimCLIM
Date:11/28/2009

The Vanuatu National Advisory Committee on Climate Change (NACCC) through its Second National Communication (SNC) Project in collaboration with the Vanuatu Meteorological Services and CLIMsystems Ltd. of New Zealand have generated preliminary climate change and sea level rise results that will form the background for the country’s SNC reporting to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Port Vila, Vanuatu and Hamilton, New Zealand (PRWEB) November 28, 2009 -- The Vanuatu National Advisory Committee on Climate Change (NACCC) through its Second National Communication (SNC) Project in collaboration with the Vanuatu Meteorological Services and CLIMsystems Ltd. of New Zealand have generated preliminary climate change and sea level rise results that will form the background for the country’s SNC reporting to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Last week the NACCC’s SNC Project sponsored the third workshop in a series that has linked Vanuatu with CLIMsystems, the developer and service provider, for a customized version of SimCLIM called VanuaCLIM. The software has been customised for use by Vanuatu with a local digital elevation model for all the islands of the Vanuatu archipelago and climate and other data specifically designed for application in the Pacific Island nation. The islands and their inhabitants are acknowledged as being on the front line in terms of effects due to climate change. The combination of rising sea levels and exacerbated extreme events such as droughts and tropical cyclones are two of the more visible examples of global environmental change occurring across the region. Smaller, incremental changes in the underlying climate also impact on day-to-day activities such as farming. Weed invasions have already occurred and plant and human disease outbreaks are now more prevalent. Both can be lin
