Stories of climate impacts on Pacific Islands
About this Project
From drought impacts on ranching to sea-level rise impacts on tourism, we convey climate stories using 2-3 minute video clips called “documoments.” These stories describe the experiences of people from diverse walks of life. The initial collection of three documoments is a starting point for helping policy makers to understand real-world climate impacts and the need for usable climate information.
