Preparing a nation for the impacts of climate change: implementing national plans and policies in the Cook Islands


This brochure details how the Cook Islands Government has reviewed its climate change and disaster risk activities and is implementing a coordinated and strategic approach to manage the risks from climate change, extreme weather events and natural disasters.This 6-page brochure is intended for decision-makers in the Cook Islands with an interest in policy, planning and climate change governance.

The Australian Government's Pacific Adaptation Strategy Assistance Program (PASAP) helped to strengthen the institutional capacity of the Cook Islands to plan for the impacts of climate change and assisted 15 partner countries to assess their vulnerability to climate change and incorporate adaptive measures into planning and development.
