COSPPac and the National Meteorological Services of Vanuatu, Samoa, Niue and Solomon Islands have documented existing traditional knowledge used for seasonal weather forecasting. The Traditional Knowledge database provides partner countries with a central register to manage and store their climate-related traditional knowledge records. In the future the collected traditional data can be integrated with conventional seasonal forecasts. The traditional knowledge collected can also be used as a tool for communicating climate messages to local communities.
For more information on the Traditional Knowledge project and to discuss access to the database, please contact the Capacity Development and Communications team by emailing COSPPac_CDC_TKProject@bom.gov.au
Pacific Climate Futures Version 2 is a user-friendly, web-based tool, built upon the extensive analysis of global climate models from climate change in the Pacific. It has been designed to provide information and guidance in the generation of national climate projections and facilitate the generation of data for detailed impact and risk assessments.
Pacific Climate Futures lets you to explore the likelihood of future changes in temperature, rainfall, wind, sunshine, humidity and evaporation based on 20-year time periods around 2030, 2055 and 2090 under three greenhouse gas emissions scenarios. It provides national and some sub-national climate projections for East Timor and 14 Pacific countries: Cook Islands (two sub-regions), Federated States of Micronesia (two sub-regions), Fiji, Kiribati (three sub-regions), Marshall Islands (two sub-regions), Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea (two sub-regions), Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
- Relationship to other tools: The Pacific Climate Futures Data Portal receives historic data from the Pacific Climate Change Data Portal, allowing Pacific Climate Futures to produce application-ready future datasets.
The tool was developed initially by the Pacific Climate Change Science Program (PCCSP) and further refined by the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) Science Program.
The mission of the Climate-Smart Planning Platform (CSPP) is to help developing-country practitioners strengthen their climate-smart planning so that it leads to better policy and investment implementation. The CSPP does this by making it easier for practitioners to locate and access the tools, data, and knowledge that they need for climate-smart planning.
The CSPP is a multi-partner initiative that has about 60 leading organizations brought together by the World Bank. These partners provide the trusted, proven, tools, data, and knowledge products that are linked in the CSPP. The platform’s team is actively expanding partnerships with other leading institutions to broaden the offering of products. Over the next 18 months, the team will continue to add tools, data, knowledge products and learning initiatives to the platform to extend its coverage on low-emissions development and expand to broader issues of green growth and climate resilient development.
SimCLIM is a software tool designed to facilitate the assessment of risks from climate change for sustainability officers, consultants, policy makers, academics, non-governmental and governmental organizations and students.
SimCLIM uses the latest CMIP5 climate data. Maps, graphs and charts of various aspects of climate change can be generated spatially and for sites, for cities, provinces/states, nations, and the world.

As requested by Parties at the twenty-third session UN Climate Change Conference, the COP23, this online platform facilitates access to all inputs to the Talanoa Dialogue. This platform serves this purpose by:
- Allowing submission of inputs to the Talanoa Dialogue by Parties and non-Party stakeholders by uploading the inputs on this platform
- Making visible the Talanoa Dialogue inputs for the following topics:
- Where are we?
- Where do we want to go?
- How do we get there?
