Aloha, and welcome to the brand new Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative website! This page has been in the making for a while, and we’re proud to unveil the first working product. You will notice quite a few changes to the website including a new look, a different format, and more information about the PICCC organization, our projects, and future events.

This space is dedicated to our blog, which we’ll use to share new and interesting stories about advancements in climate change science, including projections and impacts.  We’ll also share the many ways that climate change impacts ecosystems, species, cultural resources, and human communities.  Here we will tell compelling stories about the way that climate change affects things that matter to the people living on islands across the Pacific. If you have any questions or want to learn more, the rest of the PICCC website will help you find answers or point you to the people who can help.

On our front page, we feature the most current projects, news and events. Use the About Us page to learn more about the PICCC Core Team staff, our Steering Committee members, and the Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) network. The details about each project and associated resources are available on our Projects page, and you can search the website using our category icons.

The Data page contains a link to our online data portal called the Conservation Planning Atlas, where you can visualize results of projects, collaborate on a variety of topics, create interactive maps, and learn more about PICCC projects and data. On our Publications page, you can find all of the PICCC publications in one place, and search through them either by using keywords or category icons. Upcoming event opportunities are updated frequently on our What’s Happening page. And we invite you to learn more and get in touch with us directly via the Contact Us page.

We hope that this website will provide a major communications avenue with our Steering Committee, our partners, and all others across the Pacific, to better understand climate change and access both our core staff and one another. Please take a look around and let us know what you think!


Happy Exploring!
